How can I modify this to set the timer from the variable?  We have people taking timed exams, and sometimes they get bumped out of the exam or have to get out of the exam.  When they get back in, the timer resets to the full amount of time.  I tried changing it from autostart to play on the first page, but if they get bumped and go back in, the time has reset and doesn’t start at all.

I can see adding the capture action to the next/submit button, but don’t know how to make the timer set at the captured time when they go back into the course.

I don’t know JScript or Jquery except for tweaking other’s work.
