Is there a way to make a button take you to another page and show a popup on that screen?
The way to do this would be an html variable. You go to the new page with the html variable of whatever the datasource for you popup would be. Then you add a workflow on page load to show the popup only when that html variable isn’t empty. I can go into more detail if necessary.
If you could give more details please.
Use a URL query parameter when you navigate to the new page, and a conditional workflow on pageload to show the popup.
Even if I don’t want it to pop up every time the page loads?
Yes, it is very possible.
Here’s how to go about it.
- On your initial page, create your button and setup the workflow to go to your desired page when clicked.
In my example, when the button is clicked, it goes to page test-brenton
- On the same workflow, check the Send more parameters to the page box and include a key. For example, I added the key to be show_popup and the value to be yes
NOW, LET’S MOVE TO THE PAGE WHERE YOU WANT THE USER TO BE DIRECTED TO AND THE POPUP TO SHOW
On the new page, create a popup.
On this page now, set up a workflow for the event of When Condition is True
- Run this → Everytime
- Only When → Get Data from Page URL
Now, for the parameter name, put in the parameter you set on the previous page. For me, it was show_popup and then continue the expression by clicking on the highlighted area
The continuation should be is, and then type the value you also set on the previous page. For me, it was yes
Now the action should be Show an element, and then you’d select the popup element you created earlier.
Let me know if you have any follow-up questions or run into any challenges.
