Launch widget overview

The launch widget is a direct way for your users to experience relevant product tours. It’s in the form of an UI element that can be displayed on your web pages.

You can use the launch widget as a collection of helper tours, covering the important areas for your end-users.

A good use of a launch widget would be to show users a few onboarding tours in order to get them set up and using your application.

How end-users interact with the launch widget

The users will simply open this widget, search for the appropriate tour and launch it manually.

How to launch tours from the Launch Widget

Toggling the Launch Widget visibility on your website

The launch widget’s visibility can be toggled on or off. This is an optional UI feature that you can enable or disable as you see fit. The default visibility state is “on”.

The visibility can be toggled from:

  • The Launch Widget tab - use the top-right switch to enable or disable the widget

Toggling the visibility of the widget on a domain in the product tours tab

The minimum requirement for the visibility

Even if you have the launch widget turned on, you must have at least one visible product tour in order to have the widget displayed on a domain.

Example: The launch widget is live and visible on “my” only in the third picture since only in that case, you also have tours toggled to appear in it. In that case, the widget will appear, and it will contain the 4 live tours.
