Shops can schedule popups to activate or deactivate at a specific date and time. For example, if a shop is running a general homepage popup and has a product launch coming up, they may use this feature to schedule:

      • The deactivation of their general homepage popup
      • The activation of their product launch promotional popup
      • The deactivation of their product launch promotional popup once the promotion is over
      • The re-activation of their general homepage popup
