Launch guide from resource center module click

Hi there, I want a user to be able to click a module in the resource center that automatically triggers a guide. So, rather than clicking into the module and seeing a list of guides to select, I want a specific guide to launch upon selecting the module itself. Has anyone achieved this with a custom module?

Cheers.

  • Hey Dan Gleason, you might be able to do this by combining these two steps:

    1. Getting the guide permalink.

    2. Linking an external site as a separate resource center module.

    Let us know if you do try it, would love to see if it worked for you!

  • Thanks Angus! I ended up getting it to work by adding the Pendo ID of the resource center element to the CSS open rule on the guide. Success!

  • Dan Gleason would you share your work please? I don't understand what you mean by 'adding the Pendo ID of the resource center element to the CSS open rule on the guide'. I have my Resource Center CSS ID Selector already in hand. And the Guide permalink.

  • Hey brandon, sure. 

    1. Create a Resource Center module using the Custom Code option (but don't add any custom code)
    2. Get the CSS ID for that specific module, not the RC as a whole
    3. Follow the steps here to tell the guide to trigger when that CSS ID is clicked

  • I could not get my Guide to work the way you described above.   

    I did just get mine to work this way, which is a combination solution of both of your approaches.

    1. Get the guide permalink ID.

    2. Create a Resource Center module using the Custom Code option.

    3. Add the following Javascript in the Custom Code module that you added in the Resource Center:

             pendo.showGuideById('XKQSC0RaNVzpe4FxHdo');        where the "XKQSC" value is your Guide Perm ID.

    When you go to the RC, and Click on that module, your RC should close and the Guide appear.

  • Very late thank you to Dan Gleason and Jack O-Leary. This use-case resprouted recently and this came in clutch.
