Docsify & Usetiful - product tours for a single page application


Docsify is an advanced email tracker for Gmail. It helps salespeople to understand when recipients opened their messages, clicked links, and downloaded attachments, allowing them to work with the hottest prospects. More detailed statistics include information on how recipients engage with the content or how long do prospects spend on each page of PDF attachments.



Docsify partnered with Usetiful to improve the onboarding experience for new users. Product tour guides users through the application and helps them to find their "aha!" moment more easily, resulting in improved conversions.



Docsify is built as a single page application, making integration of a Digital Adoption Platform a challenge. Usetiful proved to be a good choice with the combination of flexible triggers and professional service.

You can try Docsify with their new user onboarding experience yourself - sing up here: https://docsify.net/
