New feature: Launchers

Today we’re launching a brand new powerful feature: Launchers!

With Launchers, you can embed beacons/icons/buttons in your app outside the context of flows. You can use them to draw users’ attention towards certain parts of your app or add little explanation tooltips here and there.

To create a launcher, sign in to Userflow and go to Content, click Create content and pick the new Launcher type. Launchers are published like flows and checklists.

Here’s a preview of what the Launcher builder looks like:

Here are a few use case examples of Launchers:

Hotspots

Draw users’ attention to interesting elements in your app. When the user hovers over the hotspot, you can show a tooltip with info about it and maybe even a button that starts a flow.

Explanation tips

Add icon launchers next to elements in your app that may require further explanation than your UI currently provides.

Buttons to restart flows

Add a button on a page that lets users (re)start a flow/checklist they may or may not have already seen.

You can customize the look of your launcher beacons/icons/buttons under Settings Themes as usual.

We hope you’ll enjoy working with launchers!
