Display Date

Select from the dropdown whether or not you want the date to be displayed. The date will include the day of the week, month, date, and year below the current time.

Text Size

Use the slider to adjust the size of the text in the region. Depending on the size of the region you have the slide in, you'll want it to be larger or smaller. The smaller the number, the smaller your text will be. If you're displaying the date, it will also be adjusted dynamically to ensure that the ratio and difference between sizes is maintained.

We encourage you to play around the sizes to find that balance between the right amount of margin and still making it easy to read.

Color

Select the color of the text for both the time and the date (if you've elected to display the date). You can either use the on-screen controls to explore various shades and adjust the transparency of the color. Or you can key in the exact hexcode of a color if you know it.

Font Weight

Select whether you want the weight of your text to be regular or bold.

Time Zone

Select the time zone you want the clock to display.

FAQs

 Can I have the date to the right or left of the time instead of beneath it?

Not currently, but we're always collecting feature requests from our community. So feel free to let us know if this is something you're looking for!

 My time zone isn't listed, what should I do?

Reach out to our support team and let us know what time zone you need. Then we'll get your time zone included in the drop down!

 Does the Caption field under Slide Settings affect this widget?

It does! It's our recommendation that you keep the caption blank for this and any other text-based widget, but if you have a way to integrate them together, go for it!
