Guide List module

Last updated:

The Guide List module is a list of guides in a module in the Resource Center and enables users to manually activate guides at any time.

The module allows the following:

  • A search bar allows users to filter the Guide List.
  • Guides added to the module can be renamed in the context of the module, and the list can be ordered.
  • Individual guides still respect segment and activation settings set up in guide details. Adding it to the Guide List module only adds a new activation method.
  • If a guide is not available to a user, either because they aren't in the segment, the target element isn’t visible, or the user is not on the target page, the guide doesn't appear in the Guide List.
  • If no guides are currently available, the Guide List doesn't appear.

Add a Guide List module

  1. Hover over the Resource Center list and select Add Module.

  2. Hover over Guide List and select Module.
  3. Select Add Modules in the bottom-right corner.

Add guides to the Guide List

  1. Hover over the Guide List module and select View Module Details.
  2. Select Edit, and from the Select Existing Guide dropdown list, select the guides you want to add to the Guide List. You can select multiple guides.


    Note: You can also select guides that were created in the Classic Designer. You can edit the display names if you want to use a more user-friendly title. This doesn't disrupt your internal naming convention.

  3. Select Save and then select Save Module to confirm.
  4. To reorder your guides, select and drag them into the required position.
  5. If required, select the display name to rename your Guide to a more user-friendly title without disrupting your internal naming convention.
