What Developers Have to Say

It sometimes can be very frustrating to explain to new users how WordPress or WooCommerce works, especially if I cannot physically be there. Using new software – no matter how well designed – is always challenging. With SIDEKICK we can talk our users through the process of setting up shop. It’s a great tool to have expert users in no time.

What is a Walkthrough?

An interactive, voice and visual guided tutorial. Walkthroughs occur right inside the dashboard or application and take a user step-by-step through completing a task, a brief explanation of a feature or a longer overview of a system or feature set.

Are WordPress Basics plays included in my Total Monthly Plays?

No. Plays of any Walkthrough in the WordPress Basics Module are not charged against your account.

Can I create a Walkthrough for the Front-End of my WordPress site?

Not yet but it’s coming soon.

How do users view my Walkthroughs?

Embed the SIDEKICK plugin with your website, plugin or theme. Alternatively, users can install it themselves. Public Modules will automatically appear when the required plugin or theme is detected. Private Modules only appear on the sites you specify.

Who can access my Walkthroughs?

Walkthrough access is based on the Modules they belong to. At the moment you can only create Walkthroughs for specific websites and web-apps. Coming soon you will be able to make Walkthroughs publically available to anyone that has a specific plugin or theme installed.
