 +====== Counter ======
 +The Counter Field Type allows a Software Developer to create a counter that either goes up from 00:00 indefinitely,​ or down from a set number of seconds stored in the field. ​ The Software Developer is given the option to execute actions along the way, at intervals of every so many seconds, and when the counter, counting down, hits 00:00.
 +
 +You can set the time to start counting down from by storing a value in seconds in this [[Field|Field]] through automation.
 +
 +A Counter Field will display a minimum of 4 digits: XX:XX when counting down and under one hour of time on the Counter. ​ When set to count up and given a negative number of seconds, the Counter will display red.
