Adding Your Tracking Code to ClickFunnels

1. To add any kind of timer to a ClickFunnel's page, start by clicking on the 'Tracking Code' tab in the top menu of Deadline Funnel and hit Copy:


2. Next, go to your ClickFunnels account and select 'Settings' for the page you want to edit:


3. Paste your Deadline Funnel tracking code into the 'Body Tracking Code' box, scroll down and click 'Save and Update Settings':

Now you're ready to add Floating Bar or Inline timer to your page.

How to Add a Floating Bar Timer

1. After you've added the tracking code to your page (and if you haven't yet, start here), you're ready to add the timer. Return to your ClickFunnel's page and click the link to view it so you can get the correct URL to add in Deadline Funnel:

2. Now, this is very important: Make sure you copy the URL from the address bar when you are actually viewing the published page:

3. Go to Edit Campaign > Pages in Deadline Funnel and click 'Add new page':

4. Paste the URL for your ClickFunnels Page and select 'Display Floating Bar'.

5. You can also choose an 'after the deadline' URL here, which is where the page will be redirected when the deadline has expired.

6. Hit 'Save' and refresh your ClickFunnels page to see your floating bar timer.

Note: Your countdown timer will not show up automatically in Preview Mode, but it will show up on your published page.

Troubleshooting: If you're definitely not in Preview Mode and you don't see the timer appear on the page, please check to make sure the URL of the page and the URL listed in the Edit Campaign > Pages section are an exact match. ClickFunnels pages tend to redirect to a different URL than the one you may have originally expected. You can ensure the URLs are an exact match by opening up your ClickFunnels page, waiting for it to load, and then copying the URL from the address bar; this URL is the one that needs to be listed in the Pages section.

How to Add an Inline Timer

1. Now that you've added the tracking code to your page (if you haven't, start here), you're ready to add the timer. Return to your ClickFunnel's page and click the link to view it so you can get the correct URL to add in Deadline Funnel:

2. Now, this is very important: Make sure you copy the URL from the address bar when you are actually viewing the published page:

3. Go to Edit Campaign > Pages in Deadline Funnel and click 'Add new page':

4. Paste the URL for your ClickFunnels Page and select 'Display Inline Timer'.

5. You can also choose an 'after the deadline' URL here, which is where the page will be redirected when the deadline has expired.

6. Copy the code snippet that appears:

7. Navigate back to ClickFunnels and click 'Edit Page' under your sales page.

8. Wherever you want to display the countdown timer, click the Plus icon to add a new element.

9. Select Custom JS/HTML.

10. Click on the orange Custom JS/HTML box to edit that element.

11. Select 'Open Code Editor'.

12. Paste the code you copied for the Inline Timer here.

13. Don't forget to hit Save! :)

Note: Your Countdown timer will not show up automatically in Preview mode, but it will show up on your published page:

Troubleshooting: If you're definitely not in Preview Mode and you don't see the timer appear on the page, please check to make sure the URL of the page and the URL listed in the Edit Campaign > Pages section are an exact match. ClickFunnels pages tend to redirect to a different URL than the one you may have originally expected. You can ensure the URLs are an exact match by opening up your ClickFunnels page, waiting for it to load, and then copying the URL from the address bar; this URL is the one that needs to be listed in the Pages section.
