This one is not easy to solve with the current feature set. What you need is a way to trigger a template from another template, e.g. from itself.

There is a way to achieve this, however, it is a workaround and a bit dirty:

1. add a ticker to your template (A). Add a ticker story that takes approx. 5 minutes to exit the screen. Play with the ticker speed and the story length to time this. Also make sure the ticker is hidden, i.e. place it outside the visible area.
2. add a Template Rule that triggers template A when the last pixel of the story has exited.

Thus, the ticker functions as a sort of timer which, after a certain time, loops the template.

In the future we will offer some kind of Trigger Event object that you can place on a template to trigger itself.

Roy
