How to Set the Perfect Time for Pop-up Overlays


Control when your website's pop-up overlays appear to enhance the user experience. By setting the exact timing, you can ensure your message reaches visitors at the right moment.


Use Case: Imagine you run an e-commerce website. You want to capture your visitors' attention with a special discount offer, but you don't want to annoy them as soon as they arrive. You can use this feature to make the offer appear after they've had a chance to explore your site.


By setting the exact second when your overlay should show up, you can:


  • Reduce Bounce Rates: Prevent visitors from immediately leaving your site.
  • Enhance Engagement: Allow visitors to explore your content before showing an overlay.

Step 1: Accessing Campaign Settings


  • Log in to your Picreel dashboard and click the ‘Campaigns’ tab on the side panel. Navigate to the campaign and click "Settings." 
  • Select the campaign for which you want to set up overlays and click "Settings."
