Compare Time - Action: "Reset Time" (e.g. if time=4 Then Reset the time, Time=0)

Hi there, I think that this option should be there to enable people to create events which are controlled with time. Currently, you don't have an option to reset the time. When a developer add a Compare Time Event the following action doesn't exist - Action: "Reset Time" (e.g. if time=4 Then Reset the time, Time=0).

Is it possible to add this as controlling events with a timer is a very powerful feature and I'm surprised this doesn't exist yet on C3. I spend a bit of time researching and I couldn't find the above answer. I'm sure that this feature will help many developers including my students. Thanks for taking the time to read my suggestion. I'm looking forward for this request to be auctioned.

    This appears to already be possible with the Timer behavior.

    Compare time says "compare seconds since startup". Being able to reset that wouldn't make sense as it would no longer represent "time since startup". Just create an object (make it global if you need it on multiple layouts) and give it the Timer behavior. Timer behavior gives you way more options/control anyway.

    Why not use the Timer behavior?
