Building a Trial Countdown on Account Creation

When a user creates an account I take a time-stamp of that account creation date. I want to give them a trial account for 14 days. I can run a task that will check for when that date is reached, but I was wondering how I might render a value on the account page where it does a revers countdown for those days remaining.

Has anyone tried to do this?

Could you not use an equation field to calculate the amount of days that have elapsed from your time stamp to the current date?
Using a conditional Yes/No field you could control access.
Happy to connect to see if I can help.

Hi Carl,

Thanks very much for your message.

Late night crawling the web and I found this,, which answered my question, and was exactly as you suggested.
