Different Ways to Preview Your Product Tours

To preview your Usetiful product tours before they go live, you have 3 options:

Option 1: Use Usetiful for Chrome Extension

The first and the easiest way to preview your tours is to install our Usetiful for Chrome extension. Just follow these instructions.

Option 2: Use External Browser Plugin

Many browser plugins enable you to run a javascript code locally on any website. If you are using the Chrome browser, we recommend using the User Javascript and CSS plugin, because it's easy to use and work perfectly with Usetiful. To preview your tour follow these instructions:
