Consider you have multiple UI elements all performing a similar function, like elements of a dropdown menu on a page. Instead of having to create different Smart Tips for each, Whatfix enables you to select all the similar UI elements and create Smart Tips that appear on each element.
This feature is only available for Flows, and Smart Tips (excluding Validation Tips) with On Hover/Focus over the element set as the appearance style of the Smart Tip.
With the Multi-element Selection mode enabled, whenever a content creator selects an element on a page, the Studio automatically highlights similar elements that are present on the page. Content creators can then confirm the selection and proceed to create content for the selected elements.
Here’s a GIF of how Multi-element Selection works.
Use the following steps to use Multi-element Selection on your application:
- Log in to your application, and then launch the Whatfix Studio.
Select the type of content (Flows or Smart Tips) you want to create.
To enable Multi-element Selection mode, press Shift + S on your keyboard while selecting the element.
Once the Multi-element Selection mode is enabled, select the desired element.
You can see that all the similar elements on the page are highlighted.
On selecting an element, if you notice that Whatfix is not highlighting any elements or highlighting the wrong elements, then click any other element that you think is similar. This provides Whatfix with more data on what should be considered similar and improve selection.
Confirm if all your desired elements are selected, and then click Confirm Selection.
Create content by adding relevant information to the tooltip.
Save the created content.
Here are some use cases that are possible using Multi-element selection on-page:
Add Smart Tips to the edit icons in each row of a table.
Ensure that the step completion rules are met even if the end user clicks any of the elements of a table in an application.
