Am I missing something or is this tutorial showing that a regular timer is not running in the background but fails to explain how such a task would be implemented if the timer would need to run in the background?

@fbrancati Can you please help with this when you get a chance? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

You can use the Run Loop Modes to set the correct Run Loop for you timer.
