Automatic Open Delay

If the Load toggled open? option is disabled, you’ll have the option to configure an Automatic open delay. This is the number of seconds that the campaign will first appear in the minimized state before it automatically opens to the maximized state.

Disable the Automatic open delay by setting it to zero (0). The campaign will always show minimized unless the visitor manually selects it.
