Features included in this example

This example incorporated 2 features:

  1. Dynamic trigger (with a schedule condition) – to display the message on certain days and times of the week.

  2. Conditional countdown – to count down to the event’s time.

The Schedule condition

If-So’s Schedule condition allows you to display dynamic content based on specific timeframes. With this condition, you can schedule content to appear or change at predetermined times and days of the week.

The conditional countdown

If-So’s conditional countdown feature enables you to create captivating countdowns that dynamically adjust based on user behavior or specified conditions.

The countdowns can be utilized to generate a sense of urgency, promote time-limited offers, or build anticipation for upcoming events, driving user engagement and conversions.

Countdowns in If-So can be scheduled to commence and conclude at specific days and times, whether it is for recurring events or one-time occurrences.

The following shortcode will trigger a countdown that will be visible every Monday from 12:00 to 18:30:

  [ifsoCountdown end="18:30" repeating="yes" repeat="00:24:00:00" 
      show-on="mon,wed,thu" start="12:00" format="day-sec" labels="yes"]
