The first step to building the focus item is to choose what the focus or goal is. There are three options:u003cbru003eu003cbru003eu003cbru003eCollect data – will use a Mautic form in the output as the content. Note that it should be a very simple form (One or or two inputs) as there is very little room to work with in some of the styles. But this is great for capturing emails for a newsletter signup.u003cbru003eDisplay a notice – information only and is great for announcements and the like.u003cbru003eEmphasize a link – great for landing pages with an event, sale, promotion, etc. It displays a button to click that will direct to the given link.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eu003cbru003eEach focus/goal will have slightly different settings but all have a few in common:u003cbru003eu003cbru003eu003cbru003eAnimate? – Should the focus item be animated or static?u003cbru003eWhen to engage – this determines when the focus is engaged based on visitor interaction. It can be immediate, on scroll, timed, or with an exit attempt. If Visitor intends to leave is chosen, an option appears that allows configuration if links within the site should trigger the engagement or not.u003cbru003eHow often to engage – should the visitor be engaged every time, once per session, or during a period of time?u003cbru003eStop engaging after a conversion – once a user clicks the link or submits the form (not applicable for displaying a notice), enabling this option will no longer engage the visitor.
