    Global Countdown Timer does not submit form after time is up.

    Asked by Harshecube on October 05, 2016 at 04:21 AM

    Hi ...

    In the Global Countdown timer , I have selected "Submit form" option

    However, when timer closes, submission does not happen 

    Message that gets displayed is " Time's Up ! "

    How can I enable automatic form submission when timer closes?

    Please note that if you have required fields on your form, the form will not be submitted if they are not yet filled, even when you have a Global Countdown Timer widget. You will have to fill all the required fields if you want the form to be submitted by the Global Countdown timer.

    A possible workaround I can suggest would be to remove the required property on all your fields. That way, the form will be submitted even if all the fields are not yet filled.

    Click the gear icon on the top right of the field.

    Select General and click the On/Off button for the required option.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.
    Regards.
