January 2, 2020
Made with Appcues

Vidyard is an online video hosting platform for businesses. They used Appcues to create a brief, multi-step onboarding flow that includes modals, hotspots, and tooltips.

The most important actions are highlighted with a hotspot and tooltip.

Things we love about this ReallyGood onboarding flow:

  • It's clean, simple, and gets straight to the point.
  • There's plenty of white space—none of the content feels crowded.
  • The tooltip copy is short and sweet.
  • Combining a tooltip with a pulsing hotspot adds extra emphasis to the feature in question.
  • Vidyard maintains a consistent design theme across steps—it all feels like a single, cohesive experience.
