Interactive Wizards in MadCap Flare

Thursday, December 13, 10:00 AM PST / 1:00 PM EST

Presented by: Eloise Lewis, Senior Technical Author | JHC Systems LTD.


Do you want to make your user assistance a more interactive experience? Guide users through a complex task? Offer an advanced troubleshooting tool? In this webinar, Eloise Lewis looks at how to create a click-through wizard within your MadCap Flare project for HTML5 Top Navigation outputs. Learn how wizards can be used in a whole range of scenarios, including (but not limited to) stepping users through a complex task and helping users select the correct tool. With the use of a few tags, some CSS and a little JavaScript, you too can transform your static content into a dynamic, user-led story.

This webinar is adapted from a presentation originally presented during MadWorld Europe 2018.
