Submitting answer after time-limit

Hi,

Perhaps someone here could help me: I'd like to have a visible countdown timer for my question that also allows the answer to be submitted after the countdown has ended. I've understood that this could be done in LimeSurvey but I'm not sure how exactly.

Right now I have a question group with 2 questions: one with a slider for providing the answer and another long free text -type question with a visible countdown timer and a hidden input field (the latter question is acting as timer for this question group - you can't have both a slider and a timer in same question).

Essentially, what I'm looking for could perhaps be a visible count-down timer without any action after time-limit.

I don't think this is possible out of the box:
manual.limesurvey.org/QS:Time_limit

What you are looking for is not a time limit, but rather just a counter. Because you don't want the timer to have any effect.

I guess you probably could create a timer with Javascript and include it into your question, as when the timer runs out, nothing will happen.

Alternative : use another question with "disable only" with timer.
This disable only the extra question (and you can hide the answer part)

Thanks! That's such a simple solution, I'm wondering how I even got confused by this in the first place.

If one wants to use Javascript for this kind of problem, I found this to be very helpful.
