You can create and configure your Tooltips using the following steps,

Step 1: Create a Tooltip project

  1. On the Whatfix Mobile Dashboard, select the App in which you want to create your project.

  2. To create a new project, click New.

  1. Under the NUDGES section, click Tooltip.

  1. Enter a name for your project.

  2. Enter the App Version or select the App Version using the dropdown.

    • Use the latest version of your app to create Whatfix Mobile content. For more information on app version, see What is an App Version?.
    • Ensure that you add the correct app version from the app build that was integrated with the Whatfix Mobile SDK.
  3. Click Create.

  1. Your Tooltip project gets created and you are redirected to the Whatfix Mobile Studio.

Step 2: Capture your Mobile app screens

You can capture screens as a one-time step using the Whatfix Creator widget. This widget enables you to capture app screens as screenshots and saves them to your Whatfix Mobile Dashboard to create in-app guidance content. It also enables you to preview your projects and test them before publishing.

For more information on how to capture and add app screens, see Capture Mobile app screens.

Use the following steps to add a screen,

  1. On the Identify Screen window, click + Add screen.

  2. Select the screen where you want to create the content and click Add Screen.

Step 3: Identify the screen

After capturing the screen, you need to identify the unique elements on the screen and tag the screen so that the in-app experience you create appears on the right page.

  1. To identify the unique elements on the screen and to tag the right screen, click Add Identifier

  2. Click the desired element on the page.

Example: If you want to show a Tooltip on the Home screen, you can choose the title Home, which can uniquely identify the screen and show the Tooltip on the correct screen.
