Hey there! Ready to test your Deadline Funnel campaign?
In this guide, we'll walk through how to test your evergreen Deadline Funnel campaign if you're using a page visit to trigger the deadline.

1. Clear your Deadline Funnel tracking
You always want to start by clearing your own tracking.
Go to Campaigns > Edit Campaign > Testing > Clear Tracking:
This will clear your personal tracking only; it does not affect anyone else in the funnel.
2. Visit your page
Go to the page you have integrated with Deadline Funnel and verify that you see the timer there.
You should immediately see new tracking details show up under Campaigns > Edit Campaign > Testing:
3. Double check your deadline start date and end date
On that same page, you'll see when your tracking started and when your deadline is:
The Analytics page will show this information for each person going through your Deadline Funnel campaign. It's a great place to double-check that everyone is being assigned the correct deadline.
4. What happens after the deadline expires?
Last but not least, go to Campaigns > Edit Campaign > Testing, and change the start date of your Deadline Funnel tracking so that your tracking is set to an expiration date that's in the past.
Here's how to do that:
Now try to visit your page again and you will be redirected to your expired page. That's what will happen as people are going through the funnel and their personal deadline expires!
If everything is working as expected, you're ready to go live!
We recommend clearing your tracking again at this point (so you can access your pages again!), which you can do under Campaigns > Edit Campaign > Testing > Clear Tracking.
It's also helpful to enable Preview Mode, which will allow you to add your IP to a whitelist so you don't get redirected away from your own page in the future.
