Enable the OptinMonster beta program in your account and test out new features before they are officially released! It’s kind of like time travel, but it doesn’t require a DeLorean.
In this article, you’ll learn how to enable OptinMonster’s beta program.
Before You Start
Here are some things to know before you begin:
- Beta features are still being tested and improved by our team before they are officially released in the app. These features may not always work exactly as expected or may have bugs. We do not recommend using beta features with live campaigns.
- You can report any issues you find with beta features to our support team.

Enable Beta Program
You can enable the OptinMonster beta program in your account, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Account page.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and expand the Advanced Settings section.
- Toggle the Beta Program (EXPERIMENTAL) option.
- When you are finished, save the changes.
- Remember that Beta can be turned off, as needed… so if you ever find you’re not ready to use a feature in Beta, simply uncheck the box and Beta access will be revoked.
How To Be A Great Beta Team Member!
The best part about being part of our Beta team is that you get access to the newest features and solutions far beyond the rest of our customers, and way before your competitors. In exchange, we expect you to share what you love about new features, and to help us discover when things aren’t quite working as you’d like.
Here are a few tips on how to share your thoughts when Beta testing.
- We intentionally provide little documentation during Beta phases of development. We need to know if the product itself is intuitive and easy to use. If you can’t figure out how to accomplish what you’re trying to do without having to read a doc, we probably haven’t made it simple enough yet. If and when that happens, let us know!
- When you do reach out to share your experience, here’s a simple way to structure your feedback (using the example of cooking eggs):
- What were you trying to do? (I was trying to make eggs for breakfast)
- What were you expecting to happen? (I was expecting to find fresh eggs in the carton in the fridge I could cook)
- What happened instead? (I opened the fridge and the egg cartons had onions in them instead of eggs)
- What do you suggest as a solution? (Take out the onions and put eggs in the cartons)
- Screenshots are always helpful. Videos, with your voice describing the steps to reproduce are even more helpful. Loom.com has a free plan that allows up to five minutes per video and it’s super easy to record with.
