    Do you mean in Forms? There are timers in Forms, yes. Please describe your requirements in more detail.

    You can create a Timer in your form that is set to expire every 5 minutes (for example), then use a WHEN-TIMER-EXPIRED trigger to catch the expiry, query the database for any appointments, display alert if any found etc.

    Do not set the timer to expire too frequently, like every few seconds - especially if you are using web Forms - otherwise it will generate too much network traffic and the user will find the form unresponsive.
