How to make your lightbox form auto-popup on the screen after a period of time?

Your lightbox form can be triggered to pop up on the screen after a period of time of your choice. The user doesn’t need to do anything; the form will simply show up on the page in a lightbox.

In order to set up this form behavior, go to the PublishLightbox section of your form. In Lightbox – auto popup (on the bottom), click on Customize settings to add the number of seconds you want to pass before the popup is triggered.
