    Is it possible to set a timer starting from a specific part?

    Instead of starting from the start of the survey, can it start like in the middle of the survey?

    May I suggest that you check the Timer widget, please?

    The Timer widget will not start until the page on the form where it is placed is loaded. 

    Let's say the widget is on the second page of the form, while the respondent is on the first page, the Timer will not start. It will only start as soon as the second page is loaded.

    Please give it a try to see if it suits your requirements. Feel free to ask us anytime if you have other questions or concerns.

    I meant a countdown timer.

    Eg: The participants would only have 2 minutes to complete a certain part of the survey. I do not want to start the countdown from the beginning of the survey. I only want the countdown to start at a certain part.

    This link https://widgets.jotform.com/search/timer should redirect you to the list of timer widgets we have. Here's a screenshot of the list:

    Unfortunately, we don't have any other timer widgets aside from the given list. 

    I would suggest placing each survey questions on separate pages since the timer starts when the page loads. I created a demo form for reference. Here's the link:

    I've set the timer for 2 mins but the form does not automatically submit when the time is up. 

    The countdown timer says one is unable to submit after the time limit but I am still able to submit the form even after the time limit.
