By timers, I mean a ticking countdown clock for time sensitive tasks, such as holding a reservation spot. Essentially "You have 3:00 minutes to complete your registration".
I've seen Eventbrite implement this and was wondering if there were any best practices or considerations in terms of usability.
This is what I have:
- The user selects a time slot, countdown appears near the CTA
- Changing time slots resets the countdown
- Countdown appears near the CTA in all other steps of the step-form
- If countdown expires before user submits the scheduling, notification appears telling them countdown expired with a CTA linking back to time slot selection step.
