  • Hi Patrick,

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by "not firing", but in JavaScript, the following would be comparing string value, and not time value.

    datenow > countto

    To compare time value, it would be better to use getTime(), which would return milliseconds since 1 January 1970 00:00:00 UTC, which would be numerical and so comparable using greater-than, less-than, and equal.

    For example: 

    var datenow = new Date(;
    var countto = new Date("2018-03-03 19:00:00.000Z").getTime();
    if (datenow > countto) {
    } else if (datenow < countto)


    Let me know if I misunderstood and I can take a look again :)
