Can I Add a Timer for Google Forms?

How to Set a Time Limit on Google Forms Using Add-ons
1. Navigate to the Add-ons Menu from Your Google Form
Click on the three vertical dots in the upper-right corner of your Google Form and select "Add-ons" from the drop-down menu.
2. Search for a Timer Add-on in the Marketplace
In the Add-ons marketplace, enter "timer" into the search bar or look for a specific timer add-on such as "Form Timer," then review the available options based on their ratings and reviews.
3. Install Your Chosen Timer Add-on
Select the timer add-on that best suits your needs and click “Install” to add it to your Google Forms.
4. Open the Add-ons Menu After Installation
Return to your Google Form and click on the puzzle icon in the top menu bar to access your installed add-ons.
5. Configure the Timer for Your Form
In the Add-ons menu, find and click on the newly installed timer add-on to configure the countdown timer and other settings as required for your form.
6. Save Your Settings and Preview the Form with Timer
After configuring the timer, save your settings and click on the preview button (looks like an eye) to test how the timer works within your form.
