What is the difference between displaying On Load, On Focus, On Exit Intent, and Manually?
Within the Intercept Change options, you will find the Display Intercept dropdown menu. This menu allows you to decide when a creative will be shown once the display logic has been successfully validated. It is important to know how each of these options will affect the behavior of your intercepts.
- On Load: The On Load option is the most basic display option. With this option selected, an intercept fires on a valid page as soon as the the page itself loads. This means that a website visitor could load a URL in a separate tab or browser instance and have a creative shown to them without seeing it themselves.
- On Focus: The On Focus option allows us to more reliably ensure that a website visitor is active on a page before encountering an intercept. When a page loads that would display an intercept, the On Focus setting prevents the script from running until the visitor is active on the page. This is determined by mouse movement and clicking. This means that if the URL loads in a new tab, for example, the user will need to navigate to that tab and interact with the page first before the script runs. This is useful if your creatives are set to display on a timer.
- On Exit Intent: This option aims to display a creative when the website visitor attempts to leave your site. When Site Intercept code is present on a page, we can detect the movement of a user’s mouse within the bounds of the browser. The Exit Intent feature detects the moment a cursor moves to the upper regions of a browser and triggers the intercept at this moment. Thus, when someone attempts to close a tab, you can intercept them.
- Manually: This option is primarily used in Single Page Application setups. Selecting this will prevent anything from being displayed automatically. Instead, the Site Intercept API must be run by the site itself to make the script fire and a creative display. Commonly, this is used when you want an intercept to trigger when certain elements on a single page are changed, such as changing filter values or loading elements within the same URL.
