Maybe you want your popup to appear when the user clicks on a specific button, for example- book here. It’s possible!
To do this, when you create your page, you add a ‘button’ element, and in the link settings, instead of copying an url, you will click on ‘Dynamic tag’ then select popup in Actions.
