How does the "When someone views any product" trigger work?

Using our new UI? You might want to check this help article instead.

When designing your own Moosend automations the first that you'll need to do is choose a trigger out of the available automation trigger types. The trigger type titled "When someone views any product" is an example of a trigger type that requires that you first set up your Moosend account so that it identifies your website users in order for it to work. This trigger reacts by putting your automation in motion when someone views a product that meets specific conditions, inside one of your websites.


There are two parameters that you need to define on this type of trigger:


1. You need to choose whether the automation will be triggered every time someone views a product that meets your conditions, or whether it will be triggered only the first time the product is viewed.



2. The second parameter you need to define is the website in which the product needs to viewed, in order to trigger your automation!when-someone-views-any-product-2a.png


You can find a list of the websites which you manage on the drop-down menu; if you choose a specific one out of the list, all events from the other websites will be ignored. After you're done, click on the Save button to have your trigger ready and waiting inside your workflow. 

This type of trigger is commonly used on automations of the Abandoned Cart variety. You can build your own as soon as you learn how to use Actions and how to use the available Conditional / Control steps.
