During flow creation in UserFlow’s tool, the users are shown tooltips to help them move through the tool and this is supported by hotspot use when the screen gets complicated. This way users know exactly what to do and where to click for the learning material to work.
✅ Tooltip and hotspot combo - By explaining with a tooltip and directing with a hotspot, UserFlow makes great use of a combo of prominent onboarding UX patterns.
✅ Dismissable tooltip - Because the users don’t need the tooltip to go further with the onboarding flow, it is a good practice to have the tooltip be dismissable.
✅ No need for shadowing - UserFlow’s onboarding needs no shadowing since they make use of a hotspot that works as a beacon, showing the users where to focus and look at.
