Teleporter cannot be activated from a timeline
Now this may be by design, but if you put a teleporter in a timeline, or have a keyframe activate a teleporter from a timeline the timeline stops. So this is either a bug, or its just something that we cant do.
If it is the latter, how do you teleport stuff during a cut scene for example?
Thanks for the post, you should be able to activate teleport logic from timelines.
In the case where you have a teleporter on the timeline, you will need to surface snap the timeline to the object its teleporting, or have wired from the teleporters “affect objects” output to the object you want to be teleported.
In the case of using a key-frame on a timeline, again the teleporter gadget needs to be surfaced snapped to the object or wired to via the affect object output in order to teleport the object to the position you want.
Hopefully this information helps, do get in touch if your still experiencing a problem.

I just wanted to check in and see if you are still encountering the issue you raised in the post?
It is not that we don't believe your reports its just that we are unable to reproduce your problem based on the description.
I think the best thing in this sort of case is to publish your level (private or public (unlisted)) and provide us with the name of the level and a screen shot/video of the offending circuit to help us find it.
Naming the offending gadget something identify able would also help
With this we can load you example and hopefully reproduce your issue. from there we can ascertain if its a bug or a misunderstanding of design/implementation

This was not the problem, I know how to use a teleport gadget. However I cannot recreate the bug. This has been a reoccurring issue with Dreams since launch. Various gadgets just stop working how you expect them to while you are building. You struggle for hours trying to get things to work. Quit. Come back another day. Problem gone. You cannot recreate the issue you had. Makes it very difficult to report these bugs because you are not believed. Next time something like this happens I am making a video because this is the third time I have had a massive problem with Dreams not working how it is supposed to only for it to correct itself next time I try.
Is the timeline inside the object that's being teleported?
