Understanding the Skip First Page Feature

We have introduced a new feature in Outgrow content builder that lets you streamline the user experience for your interactive content the ability to skip the first page using a URL parameter. This feature is especially useful for embedding content on your website or other platforms.

How to configure and use this feature

To enable this feature, login to your Outgrow account, and open the respective content in Build mode. Once you are in the content builder, click on the Global Settings icon.

Under Global Settings, you need to enable the Allow to Skip First Screen feature setting.

Once the setting is enabled, you can copy the updated content URL containing the page skipping parameter skip_fp=1 at the end. Here is an example of how the URL containing the appended parameter will look like: https://democontent.outgrow.us/democontent-1?skip_fp=1. The first page will automatically be skipped if the following conditions are met:

  • First Page Type: The first page of your content is a welcome screen.
  • No Mandatory Fields: The first page doesn't contain any mandatory questions or a lead form.

Few Scenarios & Behaviours to keep in mind

Here's a breakdown of possible scenarios to help you understand when the first page will or won't be skipped:
