Author clear and concise content

Use simple words and sentences while creating Whatfix content. Keep the description in your Tooltip brief and to the point.

Place images within the Tooltip

Ensure that the images you insert in your content don't exceed the width of the Tooltip or Pop-up to avoid any distorted images. Exceeding 270 pixels introduces a scroll bar.

Ensure the Tooltips don’t hide any elements on your website or application

Position the Tooltips so that they don't hide any elements on your page. In certain cases, the Tooltip could inadvertently hide certain important UI, leading to poor user adoption.
