I have a videoask on my website, but I would like it to appear after a few seconds on the web. Can this be controlled from the script somehow? Does anyone know a bit of programming or if this is possible. It is that what I do not want is that it loads immediately when a user accesses the web

Hey @jdavidcanovas welcome to the community!

Is your videoask embedded as a widget or an iframe embed? 

We have an Advanced Embed Options page on the Help Center which has some tips for customizing embeds, and there’s an example of how to delay the widget in the Code Snippet Library, here’s the code you can use:

<script src=""></script>


  var myFunc = function() {


  "kind": "widget",

  "url": "",

  "options": {

    "widgetType": "VideoThumbnailExtraLarge",

    "text": "Talk to me",

    "backgroundColor": "#FF3C4C",

    "position": "bottom-right"




    window.onload = function() {

      setTimeout(myFunc, 3000);




You’ll need to swap the videoask URL in the code so it’s displaying your videoask rather than the example one we have here.

Hopefully that’s what you’re looking for, but if not let us know and maybe some other creators have set up something similar! 😊

It's just what I needed. I have adapted it with my corporate colors and the title text and now it appears on the web after a few seconds. I love it!
Thank you very much Grace!

Hey @jdavidcanovas quick did you get the VideoAsk to go from..

Video-→ button → Calendly embed

I can’t seem to do that unless it’s 

Video -→ button -→ video -→ Calendly embed

Is it mostly done with code?

@Jackie Muscat I replied to your original question/thread, in case you missed it 🙂

Also, you may want to double check that you don’t have the ‘delay interaction’ setting enabled. More information on that here.

Let me know if you have any questions!
