When and how to use it
Use the countdown timer to emphasize important events. These events might include:
- Release dates
- Application openings and/or deadlines
- The launch of new products or services
How not to use it
Try not to use months in your countdown as they present a fluctuating metric of time.
Avoid excessive timeframes (more than 1 year) as this renders the countdown useless to visitors.
