Help Extension / Component

I would like to check if there is an available extension in Adapt that acts as a Help tool for new users. We have looked at the adapt-intro extension and we are looking at a similar function but instead of the back and next buttons in the pop-up, it would require the student to click on an actual button, e.g. in the Page Menu box, the would need to click on the View/Launch button to move to the next pop-up.

Hi Sean,

As the developer of the adapt-intro extension I can confirm that it doesn't let you click on the actual icons which is certainly a bit of a drawback.

If you are comfortable writing JS you could fork the extension and add calls to the Adapt API to do things whenever you reach a certain point e.g Adapt.trigger('drawer:open');

Otherwise other solutions I've seen include using an landing page that shows elements of Adapt and explains what they do. Either in a component like the Narrative or using video.

Let me know how you get on!
