We have comprehensive guides for using the email timer code in numerous email platforms. Please check out this article for a list of those email platforms.

Important Note:

In order for the email timer to work in your emails, Deadline Funnel needs to be tracking your subscribers' email addresses first. This is done through either an API Integration with your email platform or through our Zapier Integration. Without establishing this first, the email timers are not going to work in your emails.


Adding the Email Timer to your emails

Inside of your Deadline Funnel account, navigate to Edit Campaign > Emails and you should see two codes listed under the 'Email Timer Code' section:

Important Note:

If you are adding the Email Timer to multiple emails in your campaign, it is important that you copy a fresh code for each email that you’re adding it to.

Each time you copy the code, Deadline Funnel generates a new, slightly different code. So, for example, if you are using the timer in two different emails, you would click to copy the code and add it to the first email, then come back to Deadline Funnel, click to copy the code a second time, and paste that new code into your second email.

This helps to ensure that your subscribers always see an update deadline timer in their emails.

The HTML Code

The HTML code is the best option when your email platform allows you to add custom HTML code to your emails.

To add the timer using the HTML Code, it is important to copy the HTML code for every email. This is to ensure that the email timer is not cached in some email clients like Apple Mail.

This means you would go to the Emails section of your campaign, copy the HTML code and paste that into the first email.

For the second email, go back to the Emails section of your Deadline Funnel campaign again, copy the HTML code and then paste that into the second email.

Continue doing this for each email in your sequence.

You'll notice that every time you copy the HTML email timer code, the last piece of code changes:

This is what will help prevent the email timer from being cached in some email clients.


The Image URL

The Image URL is only recommended when adding the HTML email timer code to your emails is not an option.

Typically there will be a place to add an Image to your emails, so select that option and then input the Image URL where it asks for a URL, using the method below.
