How To Add A Growform Multi Step Form To Unbounce (Overlay Method )

This post shows you how to add a multi-step form to your Unbounce page as an overlay - i.e. how to get a form to "pop up" when somebody clicks a button:

This is an overlay form. It appears when a button is clicked on your Unbounce page

The overlay method is a nice way to avoid overwhelming your visitors when they first see your form.

If you want to embed a multi step form directly on the page, you're in the wrong place, and should head to this guide.

2 - Get your Growform share code

To get your Growform share code, open Growform and make sure your form is saved. Then, navigate to "Share form" in the top blue bar.

Choose the second option - "Show Growform as a modal when your users click something on your website".

Click the code and copy it to your clipboard.

3 - Find your Unbounce trigger button and take note of its ID

In Unbounce, find the button you wish to use as a "trigger" in Unbounce and click it (whilst in the editor) to reveal the properties panel.

Scroll right to the bottom of the properties panel on the right-hand side, and copy the "ID" to a notepad file or doc

Note it will look something like the format "lp-pom-button-71" - NOT the "class" immediately beneath, which looks similar:

To get your Growform share code, open Growform and make sure your form is saved. Then, navigate to "Share form" in the top blue bar.

Choose the second option - "Show Growform as a modal when your users click something on your website".

Click the code and copy it to your clipboard:

5 - Paste your code into Unbounce's JavaScript area

Click "Javascripts" at the bottom of the Growform editor and then "Add new Javascript".

Ensure "Before body end tag" is selected under "Placement".

Paste the code you copied in step 3 into the box.

Finally, replace the targetId on line 4 ("mybutton123") with the ID you copied in step 2 (in this example's case, "lp-pom-button-71").

This is vital so Growform knows to trigger the modal when somebody clicks your Unbounce button.

Hit "Done" and then save and view your changes:
