Countdown to a Special Event Using the Countdown Timer

The big event of the year is coming up! You may want to constantly remind patients and staff about how close the event is, or simply keep it top of mind.

You can easily create a live countdown timer to add to your device.

First, go to the Apps tab in your device portal. Then find the app called “Count Down Timer.” Click on it, and then click the “Get” button.

Once you are in the channel, you can add the content by clicking the “Add Content” button. In the new Media Picker window, click the Apps tab, and then select the “Count Down Timer” app and then the app instance you just created. Then click “Add” to confirm your selection.
