Hi - Is there a way to integrate a map or world clock into my Interface base?

Welcome to the community, @Van_Ann_Bui! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: Not currently. Interface elements are fairly limited at the moment, but the Interface system is still relatively new (and technically still in beta), so there’s lots of room to grow.

I think the only way to achieve this is a wicked-ugly kludge that goes something like this:

  1. Create a field based on Now()
  2. Create an automation that calls out to a webhook every time Now() ticks over the top of a minute.
  3. Build the webhook to transform the time into a Base64 image of a clock.
  4. Upload the image into an attachment field.
  5. Render the attachment in the Interface.

I warned you - ugly.
