Here at LevelEleven, we are dedicated to consistently improving our product suite to suit both our present and future customer’s needs. One feature request we hear often is the request for Channel11 to have the ability to countdown to different days or events. Although Channel11 has always had the ability to countdown to the end of contests, this new feature is not tied to your contests and is therefore fully customizable.
This new feature allows your team to countdown to events or days that are important to them, creating a pleasant sense of anticipation. This is great for workplace morale as having something to work towards or look forward to can build more discipline and motivation in one’s daily routine. As human beings, we crave having something in our future to be excited and optimistic about.
