How to Open a Popup on User Inactivity with Nelio Popups

Nelio Popup allows you to grab the attention of disengaged and abandoning visitors. Delay the appearance of a popup for inactive visitors returning to your site.

Using Inactivity Trigger

The inactivity trigger lets you display your popup based on how long the visitor has been inactive on your site. When the user stops interacting with your site or changes to another tab in your browser, it starts a timer and it triggers the popup when the timer reaches the seconds you set in the settings, once the visitor gets back to your site.

When you are ready to use the inactivity trigger, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Nelio Popups » All Popups and edit the one you want.
  2. In the editor sidebar, go to the Settings panel, and open the Triggers tab.
  3. Add or modify a trigger by selecting ‘Inactivity’.
Setting up the inactivity trigger.
Setting up the inactivity trigger.

By default, the trigger is set up to open a popup after 60 seconds of inactivity. But you can set the number of seconds that you want to apply to the popup.

After that, save the popup and then it will open when the trigger condition is met.
