Hello –

Would like to be able to schedule a redirect from an existing  landing page to another based on a specific time and date.

Use Case:

We have a contest running with an end date of 08/10/2017 1AM. This means that the landing page that contacts are being driven to would need to redirect to a landing page that says the contest is closed at 08/10 1AM.

Right now we don't have a way to do this with out the user manually changing the redirect links at the specified time.

Thank you!

Otilia

    I believe you can have some JavaScript to perform this function. Only variable would be the users' computer date-time and if incorrect it could go to the undesired page, but 99.9% should be just fine. You can at least do that until this feature request is implemented.

    Thanks Alex thats a great idea, also came across some JS options, like putting a timer on the submit button, and using date and time to redirect.

    If you can use the JavaScript to query the current time from an external source that's not the users' computer time it should solve for that issue as well. I'm sure there are free open-source things that can be queried in this way.

  • Hi @Otilia Antipa-Oracle,

    Great feature request. We are looking to add this natively in the new landing page editor at some point this year. Note that this statement is subject to safe harbor and is for informational purposes only, with no express or implied commitment to a delivery date.

    Hello Wren - any chance that this may progress? I have multiple use-cases, but with the significent increase in webinars in this "new-normal" and using Eloqua to deliver the registration process, I'd love to be able to set a date and time for the registration page to redirect to a general laning page once registrations have closed. It would be a much richer CX.

    Many thanks,


    Derek
