One of the simplest methods for triggering your countdown is through our Optin Form trigger. This allows you to start a lead's deadline based on when they opt into your list.
Important: Whenever you have the option of choosing the API or Zapier integration we recommend that choice over this Optin Integration. The optin feature doesn't work with all optin forms. More information can be found here.
Integrating Deadline Funnel with your Optin Page/Form:
1. Copy your Deadline Funnel Tracking Code:
2. Paste this code into your optin page or form. If you have a section for adding custom tracking codes, that would be ideal, but the header of the page will also work.
(Pro-tip: We may have a guide that's specific to your page builder. Search in the searchbox on this page to find out!)
3. View the page where your optin is located and copy the URL in the address bar.
4. Return to your Deadline Funnel account and navigate to Campaigns > Edit Campaign > Pages.
Click 'Add New Page' and add your optin page URL, select 'Start tracking on optin form submission' and click 'Save':
Testing the optin trigger
To test, you'll navigate back to your optin page/form and opt-in with a new email address. Then check under Analytics in Deadline Funnel to verify that the email address has been added. And you're all set! The deadline will now begin based on when a lead opts into your list.
