You can customize a Beacon and the text that appears with it so that it suits the rest of your application.

A Beacon can be customized in two places:

  • Account Level
  • Beacon Level

Each Whatfix Beacon can have its unique properties— Beacon style and Beacon color, different from the Account Level Configurations.
For example, all the Beacons in your account can be radial styled but you can customize one Beacon to be NEW styled when you want to focus on a new update.
