If you chose "Date counter", enter the final date or deadline of your countdown. If you chose "Timer" select the amount of time you want to count down.
You can optionally choose to repeat your countdown or timer and its frequency. You can also add personal notes to your countdown.
Select if you want the countdown or timer to show its progress by percentage or by the time that has passed/left and its time units.
You can also choose to count down or to count up. Your countdown will change accordingly.
