Are you tired of missing your favorite show or the beginning of important news? It can be really difficult to remember the time of multiple events at once. Sometimes you may even end up missing the show!
I always missed my favorite Youtuber’s live streaming, which ultimately got me to research more about timers.
No need to feel intimidated because, it turns out, creating a timer is so much easier than you think. Hence, I will show you how to make a timer in this guide so that you never have to miss your favorite drama, movie, or show again.
Before diving into how you can create your timer, let me talk a little bit about what a timer actually is. Simply speaking, a timer or a countdown timer is a device that counts down to an event. These days, you will notice numerous websites using a countdown timer to promote their events or products.
This device allows you to mark the days, hours, minutes, and seconds before a particular event. Furthermore, there are mainly two types of timers.
Whatever the reason you may use a timer, it will always show a countdown of your set time. You may want to pick out a designing platform that has a broad array of available designs from which you can choose.
Platforms for timers will allow you to build and customize your timer much more efficiently. One platform is Canva; it will provide more than enough designs/templates that you will be able to use. Here, I will be telling you how to use Canva effortlessly.
Once you have chosen this option, write down the countdown timer in the sidebar’s search box. That will show you numerous premade templates with different designs.
For example, for creating a timer that will begin the count down from 10 minutes, type “ten minutes” in the search box.
Suffices to say, this online platform is not the only one that will allow you to create a timer. Fortunately, many websites already have premade code you can use to get your desired timer directly. You can even use some freeware versions to input the basic information directly, and bam! You got your countdown timer.
Additionally, you can install the timer on your desktop or toolbar. If you wish to share the countdown with other people through a video or online websites, the procedure I mentioned will allow that as well.
My final point is, play around with the steps that I have mentioned. You can even add graphics, music, animation to spice the countdown up. That is one trick you can use to grab the viewer’s attention.
Previously, I have only mentioned a few uses of the countdown timer. Here, I will speak more elaborately about the advantages of timers you can achieve.
Whatever the reason you end up choosing to use a countdown timer, this device will help you manage your time better. Sometimes, it is impossible to keep track of time when you are having a hectic day or have too much work scheduled.
What better than using a fantastic tool like a timer to manage this issue? But I can understand why you may feel hesitant to create one because I thought the same too! That is why my simple guide of how to make a timer will take away all your hesitant feeling and allow you to create a personalized timer freely.
