Install Usetiful to start publishing product tours


Once you installed Usetiful, you can start to publish product tours and begin collecting data for their analysis. The only thing you need to do is to embed a bit of javascript to your website. If you use tools like Google Tag Manager, you don't even have to touch your website code.

If you are not a developer, send the code to somebody who can help you. If you need any assistance from our side, feel free to contact us.

Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager (GTM) is a free tool that allows you manage and deploy tags (snippets of code or tracking pixels) on your website (or mobile app) without having to modify the code. Using GTM requires to be registered and their javascript code on your website. Then you can manage your code online.


1. To add the Usetiful code to GTM, login to your GTM account and select the appropriate container for your website.

2. Open your Tags section from the menu and add a new tag.

3. Edit tag configuration and choose tag type Custom > Custom HTML.



4. Paste your code to the HTML text area. It should look similar to the picture below:


5. Now, we need to ensure that the script is called once all the elements on your site are loaded. Therefore click on the Triggering section and add a new trigger of type DOM ready. If you want to trigger the script just on specific sites or pages, select the option This trigger fires on > Some DOM Ready Events and specify the configuration.





6. Save the new trigger.

7. Select the new trigger, so it shows up below the box with Usetiful code.

8. Save the created tag.

9. Publish this change clicking on the Submit button. After a few seconds should be code embedded to your website 🎉.

Install code manually

Usetiful works by adding a JavaScript code to your application that allows Usetiful to show tour content you build to users. You can find your script on the Overview page after login. Click on the "Install to publish" button, and the code will show up. Copy it and paste to the end of all pages where the Usetiful should show the content; immediately before the </body> element.
