Clock Panel Plugin for Grafana

The Clock Panel can show the current time or a countdown and updates every second.

Show the time in another office or show a countdown to an important event.

Plugin options


  • Mode:

    Default is time. If countdown is chosen then set the Countdown Deadline to start the countdown.

  • 12 or 24 hour:

    Show time in the 12/24 hour format.

  • Offset from UTC:

    This is a simple way to get the time for different time zones. Default is empty and that means local time (whatever that is on your computer). -5 would be UTC -5 (New York or central US)

  • Countdown Deadline:

    Used in conjuction with the mode being set to countdown. Choose a date and time to count down to.

  • Countdown End Text:

    The text to show when the countdown ends. E.g. LIFTOFF

  • Date/Time formatting options:

    The font size, weight and date/time formatting can be customized here. If the seconds ticking annoys you then change the time format to HH:mm for the 24 hour clock or h:mm A for the 12 hour clock, or see the full list of formatting options.

  • Bg Color:

    Choose a background color for the clock with the color picker.


  • Sync:

    The clock is paused and only updated when the dashboard refreshes - the clock will show the timestamp for the last refresh.
