How to display a popup on click

Qualzz makes it easy to convert website visitors into customers by using our on-click trigger. Using this technology, you can show your campaigns at the exact moment a visitor clicks on any element on your website.

Here is an example of how we can use element click trigger –

  • Show help article on click
  • Show sizing chart
  • Show new offers

In this article, you will learn how to activate the popup to trigger on click

How the on-click works:

To identify a visitor’s click, we track the user’s mouse click action. When the visitors on the website click the element, we discover the action and trigger the popup on the page.

Before setting this feature on the Qualzz app, you will need the element ID or Class from the website.

To trigger a popup to display on element click, follow these steps:

  • To show your campaign on hover, follow these steps:
    • Select the “Display” view from the popup campaign builder.

    Select display view

  • Select the Triggers option on the left panel of the Display view.
  • Click on the button “Add another rule”, to open the available display trigger options

Display triggers

  • By default, the campaigns trigger is selected as ‘On landing’
  • Select the option ‘On click’ by toggling the radio button, this will automatically disable the trigger from other options.

  • The Element ID or Class is a very important value to maintain on this screen.
  • In this example, we want to trigger a popup to show up when a visitor clicks the the button “Try for Free”. Using the inspect functionality, we have retrieved the Class name of the button.
