Timer not resetting bug/issue

Hello,

I have noticed an issue with the clock app. When you set a timer, and the timer is up, a screen comes up stating that the timer is up and you have an option to click ok. If you click ok, the timer does not reset in the clock application. It just shows you how many seconds it took you to dismiss it. This is getting annoying, because after a while, you end up with a bunch of negative timers in the timer app and in order to use them, you must first click "reset".

I honestly don't see why dismissing the timer just pauses it instead of resetting it and why it was programmed this way. May just be a bug.

    There are probably some people wondering how long it took them to dismiss the alarm but I understand what you mean.

    You wouldn't see all these alarms if you would just change the latest alarm instead of always creating a new one. It's the exact same amount of clicks to change an existing one as to make a new one.

    Google Clock has the same behaviour.

    Exactly.

  • Google Clock has the same behavior.

    Actually, with Google clock, if you press stop in the notification then go into the app, the timer is back to the value you set it at, not the negative seconds it took you to press stop. Please see the video below:

    And then here is ASUS clock behavior:

    But what if I want to create a timer with Google Assistant? If I make one with Google Assistant, it doesn't take any clicks.


    It's not really that big of an issue, but it gets annoying when you end up with a bunch of negative timers and have to reset each one to find the one you want. If anything, I would suggest adding a "reset" button in addition to the vague "ok" button on the timer up screen.

    So why don't you use Google Clock?

  • I prefer to use the stock clock application and would like to suggest improvements to it.

    In any case, I do not believe this is normal behavior for a timer. Do you know of any other timer that shows the seconds it took you to dismiss it instead of just resetting once you dismiss it? If it was a pause button that would be another case, but there is just an "ok" button.

    That's your decision, I prefer to use app which suits my needs better right now and not fixed one maybe sometime in the future.

    would like to suggest improvements to it.

    It is perfectly fine and thanks for that.
