A Bottom Sheet is a Popup widget that covers the bottom part of a screen in an app. It works like a Full Screen but does not block the entire screen and can be used to grab user attention for things like application updates, new offers etc.
You can create and configure your Bottom Sheets using the following steps:
- Step 1: Create a Bottom Sheet project
- Step 2: Connect your mobile app and capture the app screen
- Step 3: Identify the screen
- Step 4: Design the Bottom Sheet

To create a new project, click + New.
Under the In-app messages section, click Bottom Sheet.
Enter a name for your project.
Enter the App Version or select the App Version using the dropdown.

Your Bottom Sheet project gets created and you are redirected to the Whatfix Mobile Studio.
Step 2: Connect your mobile app and capture the app screen
You need to connect your mobile app to the Whatfix Mobile Studio before you can start creating your in-app experience. This can be done by scanning the QR code available on the Whatfix Mobile Studio using your mobile app integrated to Whatfix Mobile.

Click the desired element on the page.
Example: If you want to show a Bottom Sheet on the Home screen, you can choose the title Home, which can uniquely identify the screen and show the Bottom Sheet on the correct screen. Click Add More to select more elements on the page and then repeat step 2.
