Whatfix can be used to create various types of onboarding, training, and help content on all web-based applications.
Here are some use cases of various features.
Create guided product tour
Use customized Pop-ups to welcome new users and give them a real-time guided tour of the key features of your application. You can also include embedded videos to onboard users, introduce your software application using a quick tour, or deliver change management communication.
For more information, see pop-ups.
Create training plans
Use the Task List to display a personalized list of basic Flows that a user needs to complete. The Task List can be configured to display until the user has completed all the identified tasks.

Create product flows
Hand-hold your users through various tasks in your application. Users are prompted through each step of the Flow.
For more information, see Flows.
Create contextual tips
Use Smart Tips to display contextual information about a specific UI on a page. For example, a tip to help with entering information in a form. Smart tips can also be used to validate user input in a text box to comply with a given format or specific requirement.

Draw user attention
Use Beacons to attract attention to a single important element within your application UI, for example, a new feature. Catch the attention of your user and introduce them on how to use the new functionalities.

Help users with contextual information from across applications
Integrate your existing knowledge bases with Whatfix and display articles as contextual links in Self Help and Task List segments displayed on the page.
You can integrate knowledge bases such as Confluence, Zendesk, Freshdesk, SharePoint, etc.

Create a quick start button
Whatfix enables you to add customizable buttons that can trigger Whatfix content like Flows, Pop-ups, Links, and Videos. Launchers are always available on the application for your users to access at any time.
For example, You could use Launchers to introduce the survey in a way that would allow them to take it up whenever they are ready to take it.
For more information, see Launchers.
Consolidate and display intelligent help
Use Self Help to display contextual help content (including an available list of flows) from various sources including knowledge bases and display according to the user’s current context within the application. Information is auto-segmented, reducing support overhead.

Show important information
Use Pop-ups to display important information as a Pop-up at any time during the user journey. Example: announcing down-time.
For more information, see Pop-ups.
Applications are constantly getting updated. This often results in broken guidance Flows as elements change on the application. With the Whatfix Auto Testing feature, you can proactively check your content for breakages and ensure a smooth end-user experience. This feature helps you to not only detect flow failures but also to fix them before your end user face issues on your application. You can either schedule test runs or run these tests on demand.
For more information, see Auto Testing.
With Whatfix Analytics, you can see how your content is being consumed by your end users. Analytics also helps you understand how users are engaging with content and what content areas need more attention.

Track end-user engagement on your application
User Actions enable you to track your end users' actions and analyze their behavior on your application. Based on the insights from user actions, you can then take steps to engage the right groups of users to efficiently drive business growth and understand user behavior in depth. User actions also enable you to target specific content based on specific user activity. It also enables you to track usage patterns in the form of running A/B tests.
For more information, see User Action.
Understand user journey using Funnels
Analyze how your end users are navigating through your application using Funnel Insights. Funnels provide you with the exact step of the process at which your end users are dropping off, enabling you to create relevant content and prevent such drop-offs.
For more information, see What are funnels?
Understand user engagement using Trends
Use Trend Insights to turn your engagement-related queries like number of users who have completed Flows, number of users who have clicked the button on your Pop-up, etc. into actionable Insights. Create custom reports with your queries and visualize them in the form of charts.
Group users to understand user behaviour using Cohorts
Cohorts enable you to create a group of users based on a specific criteria/behavior and analyze the group to take further actions. Creating Cohorts based on user behavior enable you to unearth hidden patterns, validate/invalidate hypothesis, and draw insights.
Visualize insights and make data driven decisions using Dashboards
Whatfix enables you to create Dashboards with actionable Insights and customize them depending on your business needs and use cases. These custom Dashboards are the one-stop place for all Insights to help you visualize your data and provide information at a glance.
