    How can I prevent to reset countdown widget?

    Asked by canvshah05 on November 26, 2016 at 04:03 AM

    I use a global countdown widget with an option of blocking the form when the time is up. However, the countdown can be restarted every time users reload the webpage or the form itself. Is there a way the form reloading can be disabled or the countdown timer prevented from starting over after reloading?

    Thank you.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Yes, the global countdown widget also resets the time if you refresh the page. Unfortunately, there is no way to continue to the same time when you refresh the page. If you have any question or issues, please do not hesitate contacting us. We will be glad to assist you.
