Use Case for Type A, generic countdown
Type A is good for any generic promotions, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, anniversary, annual sales, etc
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Under "Start Time and End Time:", define the start and end time, so the bar is valid to display during this period
Step 2: Under "Countdown Timer Type:", select Type A
For the example in the screenshot, the bar is valid to display from 12AM Oct 20th, 2016 to 12AM Oct 23th, 2016; the actual countdown time is 72 hours (3 days).
