Elementor and its various add-ons offer many gorgeous and easy to use dynamic design elements. They are great. But… The manner in which the data driving these elements don't appear to be as dynamic as the displayed end results.
Currently, if you wish to display a countdown clock or progress bar on a site you must populate the element's value manually with a date/time for the countdown clock and a percentage for the progress bar.
Is it possible, either out of the box or with the use of add-ons to populate the driving values of these animated elements using shortcodes from other plugins or user submitted form data so as to have a truly dynamic experience with Elementor?
My desired end result:
I'd like to build an Elementor page template that can be applied to a great number of pages managed by individual site members and that pulls data from the respective page owner's information which they've supplied via form submission or other means.
Can this be done?
Yes it can be done. You will need Elementor Pro which gives you the ability to create templates that you can apply to your pages / posts. It can pull data from custom fields that you have for those pages / posts.
