Defining a step as optional

Web applications like Facebook, Gmail, ZenDesk, and Whatfix automatically log in their users during subsequent visits. Thus, instructions to sign in or sign up may apply only to first-time users. Steps to log in can be declared optional when creating a Flow.

Optional steps ensure that the user experience is not broken because of different possible scenarios. Optional steps are skipped when those pages or elements are not displayed to a certain set of users thus ensuring continuity of the Flow for all kinds of scenarios. So if the user is already logged in to the application, they are not shown the tool tip for the login screen while those users who have not logged in, see the step to log in.

To make a step optional,

  1. Click the Whatfix Editor plugin in the browser toolbar.

  4. Click +Step.
