Hidden (GM-Only) Custom Turn Order items

Hello, hope I'm posting in the right place and that it gets eyes on, but... I have often wished I could add a Custom Turn Order item into the Turn Tracker, but be able to keep it hidden from the players. For ex., a dragon's breath tracker, or similar. Ie, after a dragon breathes, I'd like to roll the d4 for how long until he can do so again, then track that in the Turn Order with a Custom Item and Round Calculation, but keep it hidden from the players. Right now, I'm using a hidden token to track those types of things, but I have to just use it as a reminder, as you can't add a Round Calculation to a token's turn...  Thanks!
Since the latest Turn tracker Update, Tokens on the GM Layer do not appear in the counter for the players and should not be visible for Players in the tracker. You can test this by using a Dummy Account... DMCP said: Hello, hope I'm posting in the right place and that it gets eyes on, but...

As TheMarkus1204 says, a token on the GM layer will be invisible to players, so that's a free way to approach this. Since you have a Pro subscription, you can use this scriptlet from TheAaron to add a custom invisible item to the Turn Tracker:&nbsp; <a href="https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/6606108/hidden-custom-turn-order-items/?pageforid=6606389#post-6606389" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/6606108/hidden-custom-turn-order-items/?pageforid=6606389#post-6606389</a> I'm still upvoting because it would be nice to have a built-in 'visibility' setting for items on the Turn Tracker (GM only or visible to players).
Yes, a general, overall Visibility Setting on the entries in the Turn Tracker would totally solve this issue, for sure! Great kaizen! Thanks all!
