New timer feature

July 25, 2023

We’re excited to introduce a game-changing feature to enhance your collaborative workshops and meetings with IdeaClouds. Say hello to the all-new timer feature! Designed with your team’s productivity in mind, this tool is perfect for everything from retrospectives to brainstorming sessions.

What is the timer feature?

The timer feature is a customizable countdown tool that allows facilitators to keep sessions on track by displaying the remaining time for group activities. It’s a simple yet powerful addition that ensures your team stays focused and makes the most of every minute.

Here's why you'll love it:

  • Stay on schedule: Set specific time limits for activities like brainstorming, discussions, or retrospectives. The timer keeps everyone aware of the time remaining, helping you stay on track and achieve your goals.
  • Increase productivity: Time constraints can be a powerful motivator. With the timer, your team will naturally become more efficient, leading to better results in less time. 
  • Improve engagement: Participants can see the time ticking away, which encourages active participation and prevents discussions from dragging on. 
  • Streamline workshops: No more interruptions to check the clock or remind everyone of time constraints. The timer takes care of it all, allowing you to focus on the content and goals of the workshop.
