  2. Dear creative team,

    Good work indeed.

    Can you also make a template which shows arrows originating from one point and moving to another point on a map.

  3. super… this is what was missing. sometimes you say, we will continiu in a 15 min, but nobody keeps checking his watch. Great idea.

  5. I’m a corporate trainer and I find this very helpful when:
    – I’m giving my participants a time limit for activities in class
    – I want my participants to come back punctually from their breaks.

    It’s great!

  17. Awesome!!! Thanks so much for putting this online.

  18. Very nice! A question for you: I’m unsure how one would embed this into an existing presentation. It appears that the whole shebang would need to be embedded, so you couldn’t automatically have the clock start at 15 or 10 or 20 minutes. Correct?

    Unfortunately, if true, then it wouldn’t be quite as elegant of a solution as I’d like.

  29. I ran this as a slide show starting with the second slide (20:00) [slide show – start slide show – from current slide] and it started counting down from 20:59 (20:58, 20:57 …) If so, it’s a 21 minute countdown timer. To make it a 20 minute timer, you have to start at the slide that shows 19:00, which begins at 19:59 when you start the slide show. Similarly, for a 15 minute countdown, you have to start at the slide that shows 14:00.

    Or, am I doing something wrong?

  39. Is there any way to edit it? I would also like the time to be a graphic so that I can add it smaller to the corner of a ppt i already have. Is that possible?
