Creating Countdowns, Clocks, & Timers in ProPresenter 6

ProPresenterYay! There is now the freedom to use as many clocks and timers as you’d like in ProPresenter 6. But how do you harness all that extra power to do something productive?

The clocks module serves two purposes. The primary purpose is controlling clocks that are seen only on the stage display. The second is controlling countdown clocks that can be shown on the stage display, in a Message, or both.

Access the clocks
To access the clocks module, customize the toolbar to add the Clocks icon, select it from the View menu, or use Control + C on your keyboard.

Current Time Format
This allows you to choose the way you want to display the system clock in ProPresenter. You can then add an unlimited number of countdown clocks by pressing the plus button at the bottom right of the Clocks window. Each of these clocks can be set to Count Down Timer, Count Down to Time or Elapsed Timer.

What do all these options mean?
If you change the time, click the reset button to the left of the clock to update the time.
Clicking Stop will end the clock.
Over Run allows a clock to continue running past zero.
The buttons at the bottom will start, reset, or stop all of the clocks simultaneously.
If you want to change the Clock module to a floating window, click on the icon in the top right corner.
To return it to a docked position, click on the same corner again.

Definitions
A count down timer is a standard countdown clock that runs for a given amount of time.
The count down to time timer allows you to indicate a specific time of day of countdown to.
The elapsed timer allows you to count up from a specific time, keeping track of the total time.
