Countdown or timer

Hi there, can you guys help me adding a 5 min timer or countdown once I am on a videocall? Thanks

Hello @Sandra_Milena_Baraja, I think the best solution for this would be to create a presentation and add a video with a timer. Then, you can simply convert it to a Prezi Video and the timer would play while you’re presenting.

Hope this could help!

Your suggestion would work, but it allows for zero flexibility on-the-fly.
For example, I have planned an exercise for the participants. In my planning, I allow 10 min (so I would add a video of a 10-min timer). However, some questions put us a bit behind schedule and I want to allow only 8 min. I’d have to find a video of an 8-min timer, then add it to the prezi, then start it. I’ve just lost my 2 min.
I’m not a coder, but this seems like a simple feature to add, and highly valuable one too.

Hi @Greg_Powell, thanks for your detailed feedback, I’ll forward it to our product team!

Hello!! Any update on the countdown/timer? Would love to utilize this feature during a live class.

Hi @Alyse_Proctor, we do not have a countdown/timer feature implemented in Prezi Video.

As a workaround, you can now share your screen and share any countdown/timer you can find on the internet.
