      • Add your own time of day to a countdown

        It's cool being able to countdown to when a day starts, but as far as I'm aware there's no way to countdown to an exact time during a day, like 3:30pm on 7th of December as a random example.

          • Allow user to change time zone

            By default, the countdown and start time will be adjusted for your computer/phones current time zone. You can see the name of the time zone at the bottom of the screen.

            This feature will alow users to change this to a different time zone.

                        It would be great if you were able to choose the design of the countdown timer, like colours for text+numbers and background, and abitlity to change the font? Thanks!

                              I used the site for finding the number of days from today to a given date, and it is fantastic for that :-)

                              Now I want to find out the number of days from 16th November 2014 to the same future date, but it appears the site can't do this. This may not be a often used feature, but it would be useful.

                                Hi Charlie,

                                Thanks for the suggestion.

                                We have already added a very basic ability to do this, but haven’t yet given users an easy way to access it.

                                If you want a quick way to get the days, you can enter an address in the web browser:

                                http://days.to/{date}/{year}/from/{date}/{year}

                                i.e.
                                http://days.to/17-nov/2014/from/16-nov/2014

                                The date part will understand most date formats.

                                If you’re already viewing a countdown to a particular date then you can just add “/from/16-nov/2014” to the end of the address in your browsers address bar.

                                Just to warn you, the number of days shown is calculated from the end of the start day (23:59) to the start of the end day (Midnight).

                                If you want to know the number of days from a particular time of day to the same time of day on the other date, you will need to add one day.

                                We will try and provide an…

                                    • Use your own title/description for an event

                                      I think that an easy way to customize an event, without having to persist the details per user, would be to use query parameters to customize the event. For example, if I wanted to create a countdown to the Anthem 5K Fitness Classic, a road race in Louisville, KY and the start of the Louisville Triple Crown of Running, I could specify the following URL:

                                      http://days.to/until/7-march?description=Anthem%205K%20Fitness%20Classic

                                      This would display the countdown as it does today, but would display the specified description as well. I am sure that other query parameters could be specified to expand the possibilities.
