Use cases

Use Whatfix Beacons to do the following:

  • Introduce new features to your end users.
  • Inform your end users about change management.
  • Remind your end users about the approaching expiry date of a feature or application.

Customize a Beacon and the text that appears with it to suit the rest of your application.
For example, all the Beacons in your account can be Radial styled, but customize one Beacon to be Custom styled when you want to focus on a new update.
For more information on customizing Beacons, see Customize a Beacon.
