WalkMe Menu: Getting Started Guide

Last Updated December 3, 2023

Brief Overview

The WalkMe Menu is built in the WalkMe Menu Organizer Console app.

Items that can be added to the Menu (both Help and Onboarding):

  • Smart Walk-Thrus
  • Resources: articles, videos
  • Shuttles
  • Onboarding Tasks

Items added to the Help tab are normally quick resources or guides for everyday tasks. While items added to the Tasks tab are Onboarding Items which have a goal associated with them and are often only needed for training.

To learn more about creating Onboarding Tasks, check out Onboarding Tasks: Getting Started Guide.

Add Content to the Menu

All of the WalkMe content you have created is in the left Items List, and the content that you have added to the Menu, which is available to your end-users, is in the right column.

What is the Help tab?

  • Items added to the help tab are normally resources and guidance that are helpful for users and can be access multiple times.

What is the Task tab?

  • Items in the Task tab are Onboarding Tasks created in the Editor.
  • These are items that have been given a goal, normally used to train users.
  • Onboarding Tasks cannot be added to the Help tab.

    Onboarding Tasks will be greyed out while you are on the Help tab

The icons next to each item indicate what kind of item it is:

To add content to the Menu:

  1. Navigate to WalkMe Console > Menu Organizer 
  2. Drag your desired content from the Items List into the desired tab in the Menu:

The order the items are in the tab are the order they will appear in the Menu Player.


You can convert Items that are not Onboarding Tasks by adding them to the Task tab.

  • The converted item will automatically have the Goal:
    • Resource: Resource Opened
    • Smart Walk-Thru: Smart Walk-Thru Completed
  • Change the converted item's goal via the Editor.

To remove items, hover over the item and click the minus icon.

Add a Tab

You can create one additional tab:

  1. Click the plus icon next to Tasks
  2. Select the relevant tab type (Onboarding vs. Help)
  3. Name the tab
  4. Drag the tab to the desired order

You can choose which tab is the default tab, the one your users will see when they open the WalkMe Menu. Setting Tasks as your default tab increases the user engagement with your Onboarding Task Menu.
