Dynamic Count Down Timer



I am creating a dashboard that has to do with deadlines. There are multiple tasks with separate due dates and whenever I click on a single task, I would love a countdown timer to show up catered to that specific due date. Is there any way I can create this? I am willing to try anything.


Thank you

This is extremely interesting! I have never encountered this before but there may be a workaround.


I have not yet tried this but I would go about this by trying to create the countdown timer within PowerApps, and then using the PowerApps for Power BI visual.



Here is a short video on how to create the actual app:

There is a countdown timer custom visual, have you looked at that?

Hi Greg,


I have looked at that but I have to manually input the date I want to countdown to and it does not change from task to task. I am hoping for one that changes depending on the task deadline that I click on my dashboard.



Hi @samanthamirae,


By my tests, I 'm afraid that there is no better way than count down timer custom visual for your requirment in Power BI currently.


You also could post your new idea in Power BI idea forum and add your comments there to improve Power BI and make this feature coming sooner.
