You don’t always want your website popups to appear at once. Sometimes it’s better to give website visitors some time to look around. With GetSiteControl you can configure any of your widgets to appear after a certain amount of time. Here is how you can make your popup appear after a delay:

Step 1

Log in to the dashboard and click the Edit button on the necessary widget. If you want to create a new widget click the blue Create widget button.

Click the Edit button to configure the widget's behavior settings

Step 2

Choose the popup position for your widget by clicking on the corresponding icon.

Choose where you want to position your widget

Step 3

Switch to the Behavior tab and choose the option after _ seconds in the Start to display the widget section. Enter how long the delay should be, in seconds.

Switch to the Behavior tab to configure when your widget should appear

Click OK to save the changes. Now your popup will not appear instantly after the page loads, but will be shown to website visitors only after the specified number of seconds.
