I was hoping for a 'help mode' that would help new upfront users get started with using upfront.
What am I talking about you ask?
- User can turn on or turn off tutorial/helper mode
- Animated pointer highlighting where the upfront button is, to take you into upfront mode
- Animated tooltips to tell you where element features are (tooltip with arrow pointing to the element red X icon, etc)
- Perhaps the upfront side panel, could have a quick help tutorial area built in, so people can figure out how to do things quickly via the sidebar information.
Here is code for a tooltip: http://demo.tutorialzine.com/2014/07/css-inline-help-tips/
Basically, I am trying to make Upfront as intuitive as possible, without a new user needing to read tutorial pages, or watch information videos.
What do you guys think?
I am completely open for discussion on this.
