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

Candu CTAs, such as buttons, images, or card components, can also trigger Overlays.

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?

Using Overlays to Activate Users

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