How Can I Start a flow from a hotspot or tooltip?
Q: How can I start/launch a flow from a hotspot or tooltip?
You have a new feature and you'd like to announce it in-app, but you don't want to be too intrusive. You decide to add a hotspot on your page that gives a little information about your new feature. You also want to ask the user if they'd like to see a tour to learn more. This way, you're not being too intrusive and you're allowing the user to opt-in to the tour.
You can use a variation of our 'Show hints' button to launch a flow (without a page reload) within a tooltip or a hotspot.
Add this code to the HTML editor:
<a onclick="window.parent.Appcues.show('-FLOWIDHERE')">Show hints ➤</a>
A couple of notes:
1. You can change the text of this button by editing it directly in the code. You will also add any custom CSS for button design here.
