Splash screen plus pulsating inline help

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Imagine a scenario where you need to convey a critical message to users through a splash screen, emphasizing the importance of the information. However, it's crucial that users manually close the message, ensuring they engage with the content. Additionally, the message should make a singular appearance, providing a seamless user experience without unnecessary repetitions.

In this support article, we'll guide you through meeting these specific requirements. Not only will we demonstrate how to implement a splash screen with a one-time display, but we'll also delve into linking the same crucial message to a pulsating button for heightened visibility. Let's explore the steps to seamlessly integrate these features, ensuring your important messages capture user attention effectively while maintaining a user-friendly interaction model.

Solution: The easiest way to fulfill this requirement is by having 2 help items with the same message. The first help item should be a media type of "banner" that is configured to auto-show multiple times. The number of times you choose to auto-show it doesn't really matter, as the first time the user 'x's out of the help item, the banner will no longer appear. That takes care of the first requirement.

The second requirement can be fulfilled with an inline help item configured as a button and toggled to Show Pulse.
