Form Countdown for GiveWP

Descrizione

Form Countdown is a GiveWP add-on allows you to display a countdown on your donation forms until a certain date/time. Various actions are available when the countdown expires.

Limiting your donation campaigns to a certain time-frame is useful for communicating a sense of urgency. When your donors know that their window to donate is limited to a certain timeframe, they are less likely to postpone giving to a later time.

FEATURES

  • Display the countdown until a specific date/time.
  • When the form is closed, display a custom message to your donors thanking them for their generosity. Or show/hide the form or the countdown clock.
  • Choose from dark, light, or custom color schemes.

BASIC USAGE

All of the Form Countdown settings are per form, so you will not find anything in “Donations > Settings”. Instead, go to “Donations > All Forms” and click on your form.

There you’ll see our tabbed “Donation Form Options” interface. Towards the bottom is a new tab called “Form Countdown”. There you’ll have the following options:

  • Show Countdown — Enable or Disable your the countdown clock to appear on this form. All other fields will appear when you select “Enable”.
  • End Date — Set the end date that the countdown clock is counting down toward.
  • End Time — Set the time of day for which the countdown clock will end on the designated “End Date”.
  • Clock Color Scheme — Choose from “Dark”, “Light”, or “Custom” color schemes for your countdown clock.
  • Pick Your Custom Color — A Colorpicker field to choose your custom color. Only appears when “Custom” is selected for the “Clock Color Scheme” setting.
  • Countdown Achieved Action — Chose from a list of different actions to happen when the countdown clock reaches its end. These options allow you to show/hide the clock, the form, or a custom message.
  • End Message — Show a message when the countdown clock reaches its end. Only shows for relevant settings of the “Countdown Achieved Action” setting.

FAQ

This sounds great, but what is GiveWP?

GiveWP is the most robust WordPress plugin available for accepting online donations. GiveWP provides you with powerful features helping you raise more funds for your cause from one, effective, platform.

My form also has a Goal. How do these work together?

The goal and the countdown clock work indepent from each other, generally speaking. This allows you to show the clock for as long as your goal is active, or even after the goal is reached. The one exception is if you chose to close the form after your goal is achieved. In that case the countdown clock will not appear, and instead your goal achieved message will appear alone.

How can I test the completion message?

The easiest way is to manually change the date of your duration to be in the past. If you are comfortable with code, there is a line in the main template file intended just for testing which sets the countdown clock at 5 seconds from the present.
