Frequently Asked Questions

Can I control if the campaign is minimized when closed?

Yes! If you would like your Slide-In campaign to minimize instead of close completely when the Close button is clicked, you can follow our documentation on activating your Slide-In campaign’s minimized state.

Can I reposition the Slide-in?

Yes, follow our guide here to reposition the Slide-in campaign to a different area of the screen.

Troubleshooting

I’m having trouble closing my Slide-In campaign on mobile devices.

Visitors may have difficulty accessing the close button on a Slide-In campaign if the content in the campaign causes the campaign to be taller than the available screen space. This is because Slide-In campaigns are always anchored to the bottom of the browser screen, rather than floating in the middle of the screen like a popup campaign.

If this is happening with your Slide-In campaign, we recommend adding the “Visitor’s Device” Display Rule to exclude showing the campaign on mobile devices. Then, use a Mobile Optimized Popup which can be scrolled to view all content if needed.
