How to add the Widget
To add the Countdown Widget to your dashboard, just click '+ Add Widget' at the top left corner of your dashboard and click 'More' to launch the Dashboards Center.
From the Dashboards Center, select "Countdown", which you'll find under the "Motivation" category!
How to set it up
In the right panel, you can set up your Countdown Widget with completely customizable settings! Let's go through each of the categories of settings together!
Under "Date", the customizable date will default to today's date. To change it to a future date, click the arrow beside today's date to open up a calendar window. Choose any date from the calendar!
Under "Time", input whatever time your special event begins!
You can completely customize which units you'd like to see your countdown appear in! Check all of the boxes next to the units you want to see in your dashboard! Here, I chose months, weeks, and days, but we can also choose hours, minutes, and seconds and watch them tick away real-time! ⌛️
Choose how to display the Widget
After we finish outlining our settings, we can choose how we'd like this widget to be displayed in our dashboard! We can display it as:
- "Countdown" showing just the amount of time left in your countdown
- "Table" displaying the groups of items across all of our boards exactly how they would appear in each of their boards. This is a really great option if you want to track tasks across several boards that still remain before the end of your countdown
- "Split Mode" (as seen in the image below) combining both views together so you can see your countdown along with the related items from your boards!
Enjoy watching the seconds tick away from your dashboard as you build up anticipation for your special event! 🍾
