A popular Fomo use case is to "send" events from one template to another. Reasons to do this:

  • ecommerce store that sales 100+ products, but only want to show sales from ONE product on "buy.mystore.com" landing page
  • only want to show "for sale" items on specific page or pages
  • multiple business or product lines under 1 Fomo account, and need to separate what customers see

With our Template Actions feature, you can achieve exactly this. 

Step 1
Create a fresh template via Integrations > Rest API >  new +. This will be your "destination" for copied or moved events (from another Fomo integration/template).

Step 2

Visit the integration you already connected, e.g. Shopify. Scroll down and click to open your template, e.g. "Shopify Order." Navigate to the "Actions" tab once inside the template editor.

Step 3

On the Actions tab, select a variable from the "Add a new action" form and set up whatever conditional logic you want.

In the "then/this" section, choose either "change" or "copy" pending what you want to achieve.

Step 4

On the right side, choose the template you created in Step 1 and then click "add action" to save your work.

In the example above, a template rule will make a copy of all events with title containing 'special sale' and send that copy to the template "Purchase Conversion."

Step 5

With your templates and data now routing properly, you probably want to set up a Page Rule.

Navigate to Rules in the top menu bar and create a rule such as:

  • IF url begins with "/some-landing-page," ONLY show template "Special Sales"
  • IF visitor is on homepage, THEN do not show template "All Orders"
