Can I Trigger a Rule from the Loading of a Pop Up ONTRAform? [closed]

I don't see any way to do this in the Rule triggers. I'm wondering if there's a way to trigger a Rule when an ONTRAform pops up (even if the contact does not fill it in and submit it)?

ONTRAPORT tracks landing pages, but not pop up lightbox forms until they are filled out and submitted. One method to track when a form pops up is to use the HTML block positioned at the top of the form and insert a landing page in a single pixel iframe. Wrap this in a div that is hidden and when the form pops up, the landing page visit is recorded. You can then use that landing page as a proxy for the form popping up, and determine the number of people who simply close the pop up without filling out the form.

Create the special use landing page first and publish it on one of the ONTRAPORT URLs. Use a secure URL if your lightbox form will be on a secure domain. Copy the domain of the published landing page for use in the ONTRAform.

In the HTML block, use code such as:

<div style="display: none;">

<iframe src="http://the-url-for-your-special-use-landing-page.ontraport" width="1" height="1" style="border: none;"></iframe>


When testing, allow up to 15 minutes for the page visit tracking to be added to the Contact Record. Tracking information is not written to the Contact Record as quickly as other information.

Just to be clear you want to do something (rule) regardless if the person fills out the pop up form or not?

If this is the case you can just have a global rule with the following trigger:

When This Happens: contact visits URL (fill in the blank)

*Or Ontrapage if applicable

This may not be 100% accurate, as some people may have the pop up blocked. That being said I think it will do what you need it to in 99% of cases.

Alternatively, you may be able to set an always on form rule on your pop up but I haven't tested whether that would run even if the form is not filled out. I don't think that it would but it's worth a test.

I'm sure that there is a solution that would involve a tracking feature that would be the best practice way of doing what you want but I haven't played with that stuff enough to walk you through it.

Hope this helps :)
