    Hey, Eric Miller and Chris Patrone - here is the link to our Github repository for the Resource Center snippet that forces open the modules. It will work for the Home View as well. 

    Please note: All snippets in this library are free to use, and as such, there is NO WARRANTY, SLA or SUPPORT for these snippets. Please do not reach out to Pendo Support for help with these snippets, as custom code is outside of the remit of their team and responsibilities.


  • Thank you for sharing!

  • Doug McDaniel could this be used to force open the Resource Center to the home view as well? What would that look like code-wise?

  • Erica Akroyd regarding your comment above...I thought the snippet you referenced was used to program a sandbox Resource Center module to directly open a URL? I am confused by Doug's instructions which seem to be through the Pendo UI and the idea of needing custom code.

  • I came across the following documentation which does a good job detailing how to accomplish the original topic of this post:
