Building Great Tours

How do I best use Chameleon?

Once the Chameleon Sidebar is installed, learn to target users, generate a tour link, and use other features to build effective tours.

Design principles

Follow these simple UX best practices to improve the effectiveness of your tours.

Showing tour steps by URL

Each step must have a specified URL. Some step types (Lightbox and Hotpot) can be further specified by attaching to an element.

Triggering & transitioning tours

You can use events to show tours in response to user actions, and also take actions on behalf of users as part of a tour.

Targeting the right users

Set your target audience for a tour using a default or custom user segment.

Customizing your tours

Testing your tours

You can build and test tours with the Chrome extension, but will have to install the snippet to publish tours to users.

Assessing tour performance

Send data to your analytics tool or use Chameleon's reporting to assess and optimize your tour conversion.

Enabling on-demand tours

Enable users to start tours manually with tour links or the Chameleon Tour Launcher widget
