How to Use the Countdown Timer Plugin

On the backend, the countdown timer is one of the simplest features that we offer. Here’s a quick overview of the settings you can adjust as an admin:

Audio Messages

You can enable or disable two different audio messages:

  • Half way message

  • Ending audio message

If you enable the ending audio message, you can also select when that message starts (either 3 seconds or 5 seconds before the end).

Note: The audio messages will not play in the app emulator. This only works in the live version of your app.

Design Settings

As an admin, you can control the color settings of the countdown timer from the “Design” tab of the editor. You have the ability to select multiple colors and even change the color of the countdown progress bar.
