Journeys are one of the products offered by Newired to help end users of software and applications better use and understand these digital resources. Journeys are, in a few words, guidelines which appear to end users in a sequence, normally consisting of several steps, which typically lead them to complete a task.
Journeys are ideal to follow and guide users through the actions they need to take in order to finalize a process. By using Journeys, users can reap the following benefits:
With Newired, you can easily create Journeys. All you need is:
The portal is the server-side component of Newired, and is where Newired content will be stored, managed and published. It is set-up by your IT department and our Newired IT staff.
The editor is the tool which you can use to design your Journey – content and formwise. It can easily be installed on your PC, as it is downloadable from the Portal.
To create a Journey, you need to add the application URL(s) to Newired Portal and open the editor. Then you need to login into the base application, which will open on the editor’s internal browser.
And the fun begins. With the editor, you can create a Journey step by step. You start by giving the Journey a name, then you add each step at a time, connecting it to a page element and defining its actions and content. From one step to the next, you also need to be mindful of the step transitions: which action will take me from one Journey step to the next? This can be done with a click, by typing something in a field, by hovering the mouse on a page element… we offer many transitions possibilities in order to be coherent with the action required.
You are quite free to customize your Journey Steps: you can write advice, add links and pictures and to decide whether your end users are to provide feedback after a step or the whole Journey itself. This feedback can be your driver for improvement: you’ll have material to continuously monitor your Journeys and make them better for your end user.
