Countdown Widget Added to Promote Events, Promotions, Contests


Tabsite offers a wide array of widgets and tools to enable powerful and easy customization of Facebook fan page tabs!

With Drag N Build tabs you can drag and drop to build a completely custom design

To use widgets, you must select to add a “Drag N Build” tab when creating a new Tab.

This then creates the tab and gives you the menu below. Simply click on widgets and drag the desired widget to your tab work area.

 One of the widgets is the Countdown Widget.  

The Countdown widget allows you to add a Countdown timer to your Drag N Build tab.
This gives companies an active on tab method to bring attention to the start of a event, promotion, launch, or other activity. The timer is in days, hours, minutes and seconds and the English text can be turned off so that it can be used globally.  The widget is available at the Gold, Platinum, and Enterprise levels.


Select and drag the countdown icon to your tab work areaTabsite Countdown widget Icon




When the countdown widget is dragged to the work area it will open and a user can customize settings as shown below:



Users should set the date and time to count down to and select the time zone to use.

Daylight Savings Time is an option to use, and the English text of “Days, Minutes,” etc. can be toggled off.  This enables those wanting to display other than English the ability to turn the English off.  Then simply use a Content Widget to add text below the numeric countdown.

The Countdown Widget will display on a tab as shown below.  Options shown are with text, without text, with a solid colored background, or transparent background, and when the time has reached it’s finish it displays all zero’s.




The countdown widget adds eye-catching visual movement to the tab and is a great way to create anticipation to the start of your next event, promotion, or other activity.  The countdown widget is available at the Gold and higher plan levels.
