Robot skills programming

We have never done programming skills and are new to programming in general. I realize in the competition template that you can set the autonomous time to 15 seconds and the driver mode to 1:45. If we set our autonomous mode to 60 seconds to accommodate for the programming skills, will it mess up our regular competition mode of 15 seconds? Thanks!

These statements actually don’t do anything when used on the cortex with VEXnet.

#pragma autonomousDuration(20)
#pragma userControlDuration(120)

The field controller or competition switch is what controls how long the robot is enabled.

Wonderful! Thank you for your response!
