Present multiple items

Share, open, edit, and document a folder of items as a WalkMe Share Presentation. A multi-item presentation’s title will read as Presenting Folder: folder’s name.

During multi-item presentations, WalkMe Share’s slide-drawer interface displays a unique category label which is defined by the item’s icon type plus name to signify the separation of items within a folder

The Smart Walk-Thru flow map view is not supported for multi-item presentations within WalkMe Share

Slide Indexing

Within the WalkMe Editor, items hosted within a folder are reflected in WalkMe Share’s slide-drawer interface by ascending order organized from top to bottom.

WalkMe Editor folder organization example:

  1. Folder name: “Demo 1”
    1. Launcher name: “Entry point to SWT A”
    2. Smart Walk-Thru name: “Process A”
      1. Step 1 name: “Click here” 
      2. Step 2 name: “Click next”
      3. Step 3 name: “Click enter”
      4. Step 4 name: “Click save”
    3. SmartTip Set name: “ToolTip”
      1. SmartTip 1 name“Learn More”
      2. SmartTip 2 name: “Input Validation”
    4. Launcher name: “Entry point to SWT B”
    5. Smart Walk-Thru name: “Process B”
      1. Step 1 name: “Auto Step”
