The Tooltips feature is a pop-up used to deploy messages or guides anywhere inside a platform’s interface. It provides specific and timely information to users according to task, page, or user profile (e.g., survey, message, new feature, new guide, announcement). A Tooltip provides contextual information to users as they navigate through a software. A Tooltip can support users in a variety of ways with one objective: to guide the user through a tool.
