How Calendify used Usetiful to increase the user activation by 25%



Calendify chose Usetiful as a solution to run product adoption experiments, onboard new users and announce new features.

Team created an initial version of product tour to gather insights and identify blind spots in user experience. Based on the new insights, team iterated and within the first month several versions of product tour were released. As a result, user account activation was improved by 25%.

Help users to use the full potential of their accounts

The team noticed that most users have never completed the setup of their accounts (completion rate was 39%). They struggled to create event types that the customers or prospects could book. We caught up with the Calendify Product Manager, Ondrej Dobias, to learn how Usetiful has helped to solve this issue:

"We observed this trend for months. We tried to activate users through email campaigns and video tutorials. We attempted to gather enough information about user behavior and motivations. Nothing worked well, so we started exploring other solutions. Among other available products helping to improve customer activation, we have chosen Usetiful for its friendly benefit-price ratio."

As an alternative to previous ways of user activation, the Calendify team created a guided product tour for all new users and guided them through the initial account setup.




The team appreciated the ease of use and the possibility to quickly iterate on product tours to maximize engagement and activation.

"Starting with Usetiful was very easy. No changes had to made in code, we simply embedded their code to our product using Google Tag Manager. It was nice to see how quickly you can iterate with Usetiful - you can quickly review results and directly apply new learnings to a product tour."

Usetiful helped to improve the completion rate of the initial account setup to 49 % - a 25% increase just within the first month. Dobias explains:

"It is essential to provide the right help to users, contextually, and at the right time. Result speaks for itself. With Usetiful, we have been able to optimize the first-time user experience. We plan to continue using Usetiful in the future. Recently we started experimenting with new version announcements and we are looking forward to seeing feature adoption improvements."

Select Element on Your Page

If you want to associate tour steps (especially pointers) with specific elements on your site, you need to link the specific step to selectors of these elements

Element Selector Selectors are used to "find" the HTML elements on your site. To find out the selector of a specific page element is not hard. Just follow these instructions:


1. In your browser (ideally in Google Chrome or Firefox) navigate to the specific weg page where the tour step should be linked to page element.

We will use our demo site as an example. Let's say that we want to associate the tour step with the first picture on this page (the picture of London, top-left).




2. Right-click on the element you want to find a selector for and choose the "Inspect" option.

3. The inspector panel will appear with the highlighted element. It should look similar to the picture below:



When you hover with mouse cursor over the blue like in the inspector panel, your element is highlighted on the page. If you c…
