Countdown mode

The "Countdown Timer" feature in Auto Refresh Plus is a valuable tool for scheduling precise page refreshes at a future time. This feature is ideal for users who need to update a page at a specific moment, such as when waiting for ticket sales to open, monitoring auction endings, or timing updates for peak traffic periods. You can set the countdown by hours or up to a specific date, ensuring that your page refreshes exactly when needed.

Time (Hours) Set the countdown timer by hours to manage short-term refresh needs. This setting is perfect for counting down to events happening within the same day or keeping tabs on hourly updates.

Date Specify a particular date for the countdown timer when you need a page to refresh at a future point. This option is great for long-term planning, such as watching for the launch of a new product or the start of an online event.
