I am working on a SAAS project. When the user creates a campaign, the campaign is being created in 4 days. So is showing them a count down a good idea? and what else do you suggest? Please give me examples of similar products if you know.
In this case, use some features like google calendar or something else for notify user when the campaign's ready, and for the page that you use your campaigns list show the item as a disable item with a count down, or use a progress bar into the item. There's some important point you should remember:
And at the end, try to making the campaign build up time shorter!
While I can only guess what it means to be "creating a software campaign", and you don't allow me to put myself in the user's shoes to understand how a user would like to experience that, the only things I can help you with is to remember to
If there would be intermediary steps before the ETA, or if there is any interactivity available towards the campaign, that would of course change things.
For better answers, please include more of your work and specific problems into the question. Good luck!
