Countdown App (Microsoft 365)
Time is passing by so much faster than you think...
Countdown is a clear visual representation of time, helping you to stay focused on your targets. See the time left, keep track of your deadlines & ensure projects are on the right track. KWizCom’s Countdown app allows you to add countdown watches to your pages and list items.
- Marketing/Sales – show the countdown until the event starts, or until a sales campaign ends
- Project management – add a countdown to the task’s due date to better show the time left for the current milestone to pass
- HR/Social networking – better enhance the buzz around your event, by showing a countdown until the event starts
Time is passing a lot faster than we want it to. Moreover, many of us tend to dive deep in work, many times forgetting about the defined time limitations, getting distracted by unexpected issues.
A visual aid, such as the Countdown app helps users to pay more attention to time limits and to better stay focused on the defined tasks and milestones. You will be amazed by the effect of such a small visual indicator, it’s like having your personal helper reminding you: “time is passing by…stay focused on your targets!”

After the package is uploaded you will see the following popup:
Make sure the “Make this solution available to all sites in the organization” is checked, then click “Deploy” button to properly deploy it.
COMMENT: if you do not want to deploy this app to all sites, uncheck the “Make this solution available to all sites in the organization” checkbox before you deploy it. In this case, go to each site you want to use this app, and now it will show-up as an app you can add to specific sites.
