Why can't we use an after delay trigger on a component?

The After Delay trigger allows you to trigger an action after the user has spent a certain amount of time on a given frame. You will need to set the duration of the delay in milliseconds (ms). You can only apply this to a top-level Frame, not a specific layer or object.

I’d love to be able to apply this interaction to a component within a frame.

For example, I’ve got a series of items that need to upload and then change state after a certain period of time.

An after delay trigger seems perfect for this use case and I can’t see why we should only be able to apply that interaction at the frame level.

This is where you can use interactive components. Wrap your stages into a component set and connect variants the way you need in the prototype mode, e.g. after delay
