How To Build A Custom Countdown Timer in Storyline 3 or 360

Nov 21, 2019

In this video I’ll show you step by step how to set up a countdown timer in Storyline with triggers only and no javascript. This countdown timer works throughout your whole Storyline project.

See the outcome in the image below and watch my video to set up your own countdown timer:

Hi Mark, this might be a silly question but how do I make it stop? 😅 I followed the tutorial exactly as how you did in the video (very helpful) and right now there are two things I wanted to happen but couldn't find the right way:

1. Make it stop when it reaches 00:00 (mine continues on to negative)

2. Exit the course when mins and secs reaches 0


Appreciate your help!

I know this discussion is 2 years old, but I have the same question as Aya. It see that no one answered unfortunately.   

Another issue: I am creating a custom timer in Storyline 360 following Mark's tutorial. I was able to add the "subtract" option for Seconds, but I don't get all the other options for my Minutes variable. It only allows me to Set the value.
