Adding walkthroughs in your application - Mendix Forum

Adding walkthroughs in your application

0

Hello,

 

One of our clients has asked if it was possible to create a walkthrough for an application, where new users could get a tour, or extra help texts, etcetera. An example of one of these services is https://www.appcues.com/. However, when looking at the technical limitations, appcues isn't suited for web applications where the URL does not change as the user navigates (source: https://docs.appcues.com/article/122-requirements-for-use).

 

I was wondering if someone has experience  with building a walkthrough or using a third party service for this, and has tips for how we could implement this for our client. Thanks in advance

The IntroWidget https://appstore.home.mendix.com/link/app/106738/ might be what you are looking for :)

I've once looked at creating a widget for it. There's plenty of JavaScript libraries that you could import that will give you 90% of the functionality. You usually only need to provide the IDs/classes that help to position the helpers at the right locations on your page.

BootstrapTour is a nice one as well: https://appstore.home.mendix.com/link/app/29822/
