    Hi there!

    Yes we have that kind of widget, it's called Global Timer Widget.

    This widget adds a countdown timer on your form. The counter prevents the form from being submitted, or submits the form right away as soon as the time has run out. You can select which of these two events to perform in the widget settings.

    Unfortunately the only way to have the countdown to start only on the second page is by creating 2 forms, one form that simulates the first page. The submit button on the first form can have a different text like "next page":

    On the second form you have the Global countdown widget.

    You can test it here:

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51185170777965 - second form

    You need to add the second form url as the custom thank you url on the first form:

    Also this form is populating the second form via url parameters. You can see here more details on this:
