Countdown Mode

Build Awareness and Anticipation for Upcoming High-Priority Releases.

There’s a huge release coming soon and you want to make sure radio and press are well aware it’s coming and when? We’ve got you covered: Countdown Mode will put that release in the recipient’s libraries with a clock ticking down to the second it will become accessible:

Countdown Mode Library

To make this happen, simply go to ‘Schedule’ when creating a release, set the ‘Release Date’ to a future date and set ‘Countdown Mode’ to ‘Enabled’.

Countdown Mode Admin

You can also schedule notifications - both to let recipients know when it will be available, and when it does become available.
