Give Launchers Clear and Straightforward Titles in the Editor

It’s important to make sure everything you create has clear names, especially Launchers! There may be several similar Launchers in the WalkMe Editor. Making sure to use straightforward names will reduce confusion and make collaboration easier.

Customize Launcher Text to Clearly Identify Action

When it makes sense, customize the text of the icon to give more information rather than the generic “Walk Me Through” message. Remember you can customize your Launcher’s text and color without using any code.

Adjust Z-Index if the Launcher is Blocking Other Elements

Sometimes Launchers may appear on top of other elements when you want them to appear below. For example, you may have a Launcher on the page that also appears on top of drop down menu. To fix this, go into your Launcher appearance settings and change the z-Index value.

Z-index allows websites to layer items on the page and if your Launcher is blocking or being blocked, simply try changing the Z-Index in the WalkMe Editor. Find the Z-Index in the Appearance tab of the Launcher Options Menu

Use Text to be more Precise

If your Launcher is having trouble finding their element, try changing the precision settings to Identify by Text.
