With Candu's Overlays, you can display content in an overlay that sits on top of your product, rather than embedded in-line in your product. You can make them any size or shape and place them anywhere on the page!

Overlays can also be triggered from Candu CTAs such as buttons, images, or card components.

Overlays allow you to get around the problem of limited real estate in your existing UI and avoid using engineering time to hard-code content! Let's dive into use cases 🚀


Ways to use Overlays?

Activating users:

  • Show your onboarding survey, checklist, or welcome video when users first log in.

Driving adoption:

  • Promote new features, upcoming events, and general key updates.

Converting users:

  • Prompt users to make purchase decisions with paywalls, demo prompts, and upgrade blockers.

Driving self-serve enablement:

  • You can trigger Overlay from Candu CTAs and create nested onboarding checklists and resource hubs in a sidebar.
