Smart Walk-Thru: Customize Balloon
In the Customize Balloon tab, change the Walk-Thru step balloon theme. Customize the theme color, font, animation, and shape. In the preview box, view how the balloon will appear with the selected settings.
Before publishing your Walk-Thrus, consider the style, behavior, and appearance of your step balloon. Use the Customize Balloon feature to universally apply design to all balloons rather than using the default, out-of-the-box design.
How It Works
To change the default appearance, style, and behavior of the balloons, go to the Editor, click the Customize button then go to the Balloon tab.
Change Design will open up the WalkMe Design Gallery where you can choose from an assortment of pre-made balloon templates. Choose a pre-made template or customize it to make it your own.
Animations let you add visibility to your balloon by adding an animation sequence to either the first step in the Walk-Thru or all the steps in it. For example, set a balloon to vibrate when the user makes a mistake.
