Timed overlay appear

Is there any way of having an overlay appear after say 2 seconds on landing on a share link prototype?

Hey Owen!

Two suggestions I have are

1. If you're using Studio, you might be able to play with Motion. You could have a screen transition in and set it so that it ends up being noticeable after 2 seconds. I'm thinking a nonlinear animation where you have the opacity go from 0% to 1% over the course of 2 seconds, then bump up to 100% at the 2 second mark. However, if you're not using Studio check out my next suggestion.

2. This one is less elegant but will get the job done. You could have a hotspot that you tap to trigger an overlay. It would be manual and likely only work if you're controlling the prototype (e.g. in a presentation). 

Hope this helps!
