Flipclock Countdown Widget
The flipclock countdown widget lets you keep users informed about an upcoming event, and get people excited! It counts down to a date and time that you pick, and shows a custom message and animation when the timer reaches zero. The text can be changed in the settings, and you can hide and show each section of the timer. For example you can hide the hours, minutes and seconds if you only wanted to show how many days until an event.
Considerations and caveats
The end time is not time zone specific; this means that the timer will end simultaneously for everyone around the world, and will not adapt based on time zone. This means that if you set the the timer to finish at 12 AM Eastern Time, a user in Melbourne, Australia will see the timer end at the same time; at 2 PM Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

Time's Up Message
The message that will be displayed when the timer ends. It will automatically display below the countdown when the timer reaches 0. If this field is left blank, the widget will display Countdown Complete.
What are we counting down to?
The text to display below the timer while it is counting down. If this field is empty, the widget will display Counting down...
The date and time that the widget counts down to. The time needs to be in 24 hour time, in the following format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS (e.g. 2021/12/24 23:59:00)
Time's Up Animation
Pick the animation that will display when the timer ends. You can also pick No Animation, which will just show the Time's Up Message, and the counter at zero.
If the default animations are a little too flashy, you can change them to Low Intensity to tone it down. The fireworks animation is fixed, and won't be affected by this field.
Advanced Clock Options
Select which parts of the countdown timer to display. The widget will show all sections that are flagged as Enabled in this section. For example, if you want your timer to only show the days left until an event, uncheck Show Hours, Show Minutes, and Show Seconds.
