How Pop-Ups Work


What Are Pop-Ups?

Pop-Ups are messages that display to the user either upon app open or in the Scorecard/GPS. They are dependent on the user having the app open and performing an action, such as opening the Home Screen, navigating to the next hole, or recording their strokes and navigating to the next hole in the Scorecard/GPS.

How To Add Pop-Ups

  1. Log into the Gallus Admin Dashboard.
  2. Click the Pop-Ups tile in the middle of the screen.

  3. Click Create at the top-right of the screen.

  4. The ensuing page will have a preview of the popup on the right. Fill out the following, then click Add Trigger at the bottom of the section:
    1. Trigger Information (Left Side)
      1. Date Range: Select both the date and time the popup will first show up in the app and when it will disappear.
        1. If you'd like the Popup to remain indefinitely, leave the Expires On and Expire Time fields empty.
      2. Location: Choose from the following:
        1. On App Open: The Popup will appear when a user launches the app for the first time that day.
        2. Scoring: The Popup will appear on a specific hole in the Virtual Caddie.
      3. Frequency: Select how often users will be shown the popup. Choose from the following:
        1. Every time
        2. Every 2 times
        3. Every 3 times
        4. Every 5 times
        5. Every 8 times
        6. Every 10 times
          1. Please note that Frequency can only be added to On App Open Pop-Ups (not available for messages in the Virtual Caddie).
      4. User Dismiss: Adds a "Do not show again" checkbox on the popup message to allow the user to prevent the message from appearing for them again.
      5. Click Add Trigger to finish adding it. The trigger will appear in the box below.
        1. Each Pop-Up can have multiple triggers associated with it- allowing admins to show a Pop-Up message in several different locations of the app.
