Guide Details (Visual Designer)



Note: This article covers the new Visual Design Studio Guide experience, launched Feb. 18th, 2019. If you were a customer before this date and would like to use the Classic Designer, you can refer back to the previous version.



The Guide Details page gives you a detailed, at-a-glance view of how users are interacting with a specific Guide. You can access the Guide Details page by clicking on a Guide’s name from the Guides list to navigate to this view. The Guide Details includes two sections: Settings & Metrics. This article covers general options specific to an individual Guide.


Guide Status

The Guide status can be found on the upper right-hand corner of the Guide Details page. It will contain four options: Public, Staged, Draft, and Disabled.




This means the Guide is public to all visitors targeted in the Guide’s segment and will appear in the designated "Location" on all environments with Pendo installed. Public Guides will still appear on your designated staging servers.



This means the Guide is only visible on your designated staging servers. Staging servers can be managed by admins of your subscription hereMore information on staging here.


Draft and Disabled

This means the Guide will not appear on any environment but can still be edited. While there is no functional difference between Draft and Disabled, these categories are useful for Guide organization.



This option is available for Pendo Administrators. Choosing this option will delete the Guide and all of its data permanently.


More Options

The More Options button provides access to additional details about the guide and guide copying. Click the ellipse button in top right of the Guide Details page to access more options.
