Choosing a layout

First, choose your Experience's layout. There are five different layout options, and their availability depends on the tactic you selected.

  1. Modal: A full screen takeover Experience that can be closed by clicking outside the modal, clicking the close button of the modal, or taking the intended call-to-action.
  2. Slideout: A small widget that occupies a corner of the screen. It does not interrupt the user's current task.
  3. Bar: A short widget that takes the full width of the screen and sits at the top of the page.
  4. Sticky Bar: A bar that scrolls with the page.
  5. Gate: A modal that cannot be closed unless the call to action is fulfilled.

Setting position

Experience widgets can be displayed in different positions depending on their layout. The available positions will show up as a darker gray while the active position is blue.
