Welcome to the Concrete CMS Monthly Round-Up for June 2024! We're excited to share the latest updates, community highlights, and upcoming events with our vibrant Concrete CMS community.

The highlight of this month has undoubtedly been the launch of our new Concrete CMS Marketplace. After months of hard work and anticipation, we're thrilled to see it live and thriving. The marketplace is already bustling with activity, with users purchasing, reviewing, and exploring the new add-ons and themes available. 

We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in this project, especially those who navigated the initial setup challenges and provided valuable feedback.

New Add-Ons: Zen Countdown

The Countdown block is a versatile tool that allows you to create dynamic countdown timers on your Concrete CMS website.

Behind the Blocks: Time Tracking Insights

In this month’s "Behind the Blocks," we discussed the evolution of our time tracking methods. Moving from traditional time tracking to a more reflective weekly log system has provided us with better insights and less daily hassle. This method encourages daily reflections on accomplishments and future plans, proving beneficial for project management and personal productivity.
