Javascript API

This is a list of the current Javascript Events for Onsite Campaigns and general tracking. These are useful for creating your own functions and action based on events in widgets and other events. Mostly you will need to use the Widget and Campaign ID, which you find by looking at the address bar in your browser when editing the campaign:

https://app.triggerbee.com/campaigns/ 12345/widgets/67890/editor

  • 12345 is the Campaign ID.
  • 67890 is the Widget ID


Open a campaign without targeting

This snippet allows you to open a certain campaign by its ID. It does not take into account audience, scheduling etc.

triggerbee.widgets.api.open(widgetId)

Open a campaign with targeting

This snippet allows you to open a certain campaign by its ID. It does also check the campaigns targeting such as audience, conditions and scheduling. If no variant matches, no campaign is shown. 

triggerbee.widgets.api.trigger(campaignId)

Close a campaign

This snippet allows you to close a certain campaign by its ID. 

triggerbee.widgets.api.close(widgetId)

Initiate the campaign script

This snippet allows you to initiate the campaign script.

triggerbee.widgets.api.init()

Note: This is done by default on page load. The snippet is only required for SPA sites.

Log a click

This snippet allows you to log a click of the widget to Triggerbee. This is useful for campaigns that doesn't track click automatically, eg. if you have a button to execute a script instead of URL-redirect. 

mtr.widget('clickthrough', 16553);


Campaign Event listeners

For each campaign event, there are different output data that you can use in your code. These 3 are available for all events. See what other output data is available under each event.

  • id: ID of the widget triggering the event
  • campaignName: Name of the campaign of the widget triggering the event
  • campaignId: ID of the campaign of the widget triggering the event
