What do you like best?

I used for creating a walkthrough of the result page of our UX research platform. This page contains a lot of powerful tools and analytics which were not used by users as much as I would like due to their complexity at first glance. I enjoyed easy integration, its intuitiveness. I was able to quickly create a solid walkthrough to communicate more information and explain some of the powerful features that look complex to our users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Chrome extension allowing you to place the guides/hotspots, etc. onto your website visually before it's actually published. Very intuitive and easy to figure out.

Their support is also top-notch. Any and all questions we had technically were handled with cheer and enthusiasm. Highly recommend these guys. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a few little things here and there I'd like to be able to customize more, but I know there has to be a balance between keeping the software streamlined v. bloating with too many options or choices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of communicating new features and tools within our application to existing users as well as establishing a much better onboarding experience for new users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We can make sure users have adopted the product and are using it with engaging content created in UserGuiding. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Along with NPS surveys, we would like to see open-ended surveys that could pop-up after walkthroughs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You must try different features of UserGuiding to deliver the same information to see what works best for each scenario. Give it time and your users will succeed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are using UserGuiding for the customer success department, to help our users become more successful and quicker in our software.

What do you like best?

I'm so impressed with how there is zero coding or technical skills required to setup a sophisticated onboarding flow. All I had to do was install a Chrome extension and the tool worked on my website. The product is deep with features including checklists, confirm boxes, goal tracking and reporting. But the thing that got me over the edge was that my product team could build out various onboarding flows until we were satisfied, then go to my dev team to drop it in the site, which was easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It felt a bit overwhelming at first. There are a ton of features and possibilities. For creative people like product managers or marketers, the product leaves a lot to your imagination. So that might be a lot for some users to take on at first. But they also have great support lots of help documents and best practices to get the ball rolling. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are other tools out there for onboarding workflows. But UserGuiding has everything, is affordable and is on the rise. I like working with earlier stage companies generally vs. the incumbents. You get better support and they listen to my feedback. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wanted to explain certain features within our product that were initially hidden to the user. We're able to quickly showcase a ton more features than are actually visible in the software on first load. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love that UserGuiding is a simple product that helps you achieve a lot within a short time period, at an affordable price. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It was a let-down to see UserGuiding didn’t work on mobile devices, but the pros outweigh the cons. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend giving UserGuiding a try, since it is so easy to adopt. After you understand the product, creating complex onboardings will be second-nature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We’ve used many onboarding tools to create a user onboarding, but most weren’t cost-effective or were too complex for non-programmers. Creating a simple user onboarding is not at all a demanding task with UserGuiding. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Onboarding checklists are perfect for progressing users through key points in the user journey when used with user guides Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We’ve had to add another tool to our stack for mobile tours because UserGuiding doesn’t support mobile devices. We would have them in UserGuiding too if it did. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

UserGuiding is used by our product and sales teams for training new users to increase conversion rates. As we iterate our content and include better materials, we see better results with UserGuiding. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Self-help centers and checklists could have different templates for more customization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love how different elements can be combined to create unique user guides. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It completely removed the developers out of the user onboarding process for us. Our product is also a no-code solution so seeing another business adopt the no-code as the fundamental of their product was really great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When we first signed up, we were looking for a particular integration which they were lacking. Recently, they've invited us to participate in beta testing for it and it works just fine now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

That what we were looking for and found with UserGuiding. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to use help articles and videos to educate our users. However, obviously that was not enough, especially for new visitors whom we want to deliver a quick value and make it easier for them to achieve tasks. After using the interactive tours we could streamline the journey for our users which made it much easier for them to engage and achieve tasks. And that led to decreasing our support load significantly as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We use UserGuiding as a replacement for our in-house user training material development, which includes a number of user guides and an onboarding checklist. With UserGuiding, we can create similar, maybe even better material while cutting time and costs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Ease of use comes first in the mind, the software is an extremely handy application to explain users how your website or software works. I run a few businesses, we have a technology company, a media and marketing company, a property investment company so we intend to use it for our SAAS applications as well as our E-Portals to make the user journey, interaction and general use easy for the users.

Needless to say, their support staff has been amazing and has gone over and beyond expectations to help me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

yet got to dislike something, trying hard to figure this out :) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Internet, Websites and Online Software can be very daunting for many users, specially the older generation, so a guide, a walkthrough and something that can help them with easy steps to follow and find their way through the system/website/software can be an amazing experience for them, and reduces the time your support team will spend with users or strangers online.

Goes without saying this helps to build trust, rapport and goodwill with your audience, users, community, that results in them saying only good things about you.

in other words:
