To implement this we need to add a new field to the Ontraport user that will be the contact owner for each deadline funnel campaign. Then we need to add the HTML from Deadline funnel into that field. Then we can use a field on the contact owner record to merge the Deadline Funnel HTML into the email.

Here are the steps to do this.

First navigate to administration panel

Scroll down to the bottom and add a New Section like we did here and name it “Deadline funnel code” and then add a long text field for the campaign you want to add a Deadline funnel timer for. In this tutorial we have already added the field. This field should be named in line with the campaign the Deadline Funnel Countdown timer is used for. You can add many different fields if you have multiple campaigns with Deadline Funnels countdown timers in them. This is why it is important to establish clear and consistent naming conventions.
