How to add the countdown timer to your online quiz?

Visitors could search the Web for the correct answers while completing your online quiz. This is why we have provided you the countdown timer option, which will submit the quiz automatically after the time has elapsed. Visitors will be against the clock upon completing the online quiz and will not have enough time to look up for the answers from other sources.

To enable the countdown timer to your online quiz, simply go to the SettingsAdvanced section of your form and under Quiz tick the Show countdown timer option. This will lead to a dropdown area with a box and a dropdown list.

In the dropdown list, you can set the online quiz to count the time in seconds, minutes or hours. In the box on the left, add the exact amount of time you want the countdown timer to be set. Hit Save changes on top and you are done. From now on, respondents will see a countdown timer on the top right corner of the quiz. Once the time has elapsed, the quiz will be automatically submitted.

    Is there any way to disable the timer? I’m using the Online Quiz Form template for a different purpose, and so I don’t need the timer. Thanks in advance!
