How to Manually Trigger Popups 

Popups have their own rules and conditions that you can use to trigger them, but for more flexibility, you can also generate popups manually. You can use either dynamic links, forms, or any element by using a unique selector. 

  1. Choose any link element, click on the dynamic icon, and from the dropdown menu choose Actions > Popup. Open the settings, and you can that the elements either Open the Popup, Close the Popup or Toggle the Popup. When choosing the Close Popup, the 'Do not show again' options will become available.

  2. You can also manually trigger a popup from the Form Elements. From the ' Action After Submit' section choose Popup as an option. That will generate the popup and you can either choose Open Popup or Close Popup. 

  3. And lastly, any element can be assigned a selector that will manually trigger the popup. To do that go to the element's Advanced Tab > CSS Class or CSS ID and give it its class name or ID name. Now go to the Popups Condition window and from there choose the page that includes the elements which you assigned its selector. The popup will be triggered once the users reach the page and click on the element.
