2. Maximum Display per Page: You can control the number of popups to show for a page. It means the app will display the specified number of pop-ups on a page if the page is not reloaded. For example, if you will set 20, then the app will display 20 pop-ups on a page if the page is not reloaded.

3. Display Time: You can set the pop-up display time. It means you will specify the time for that you want to show a popup. For E.g. if you set 5 seconds means a popup will display for 5 seconds on the screen.

5. Randomize?: By checking(enabling) this option you can allow auto delay time between two notification popups instead of fixed intervals.

6. Hide timeago part after: You can hide the time ago part by giving the values in seconds or minutes or hours or days. For example, if you will enter 30 days then the orders will be displayed with time in the popups up to 30 days from the occurrence of the orders. After 30 days time will be hidden in the popups automatically.

7. Hide order after: You can hide the order by giving the values in seconds or minutes or hours or days. For example, if you will enter 365 days then the orders will be displayed in the popups up to 365 days from the occurrence. After 365 days the order will be hidden automatically.
