With the Time Widget added to a playlist, go into the 'Customise' area.

Under the option for Clock Type, select 'Analogue'

Under Clock Style, choose a preset option or Custom to build your own.

Making a Custom Clock

If you choose to make your own custom clock, be sure to choose 'Custom' for the clock style.

Now you have options to add your own images for the various elements of the clock.

Upload your images to the media section, then select 'change image' for each element to set your image.

Quick Design Tip: We recommend using png, svg or jpg for the images.

Hour, minute and second hands should be rendered either horizontal or vertical and you should avoid rendering with unnecessary blank space.

Here is an example of a png that has been uploaded and selected for the clock face:

Here is the hour hand image. You'll note that there are extra options for the hands - these are:

  • 90° left / right rotation buttons - use these to flip your hand image left or right to show correctly on the clock face.

  • Scale - this allows you to increase / decrease the size of the hand on the clock

  • Offset - this allows you to position the hand from the centre the clock face

Here's the minute hand - again the same options as the hour hand:

Finally, the second hand:

With all the custom elements added, you can see that the custom clock face appears like this:

Now, save your changes:

Finish editing the rest of your layout and publish to your device.
