If your experience is configured to start in the future, all users that visit the URL will be directed to the Pre-Start Page. Most admins use the default, “Please check back later. The promotion you are trying to access hasn’t started yet”, because often times campaigns are not promoted until they are ready to accept entries, so users generally never see the Pre-Start Page.
When you Enable the Fan-Gate, you can ask users to first like your Facebook Business Page before they enter the promotion (due to Facebook’s platform policies, you cannot require or incentivize this action).

Elements

By clicking Elements in the left navigation of the Design section, you can add images, videos, text, or even design creative with the Canvas element.

By default, Polls start with no form element (Formless-submit). If you would like to collect data from entrants, add the Form element here.
