Overlay and Coachmarks

The document below will explain what the Overlay option is in the Pointzi Creator and how it can be used. There are two options under the overlay menu general overlay and Coachmark, both which are explained below.


Overlay is a layer or colour that can be put on the screen when Pointzi content is being displayed.

You have the option to choose a colour and the transparency of the color of the overlay. The default overlay (shown below), uses a mostly transparent black overlay on the screen behind the Pointzi content. This default is good to use when you want the user to still be able to see the website behind but mostly draw attention to the Pointzi content on screen.

The image below shows an example of how this could look to the your users if you use the above settings.

Overlay example


Coachmarks will only appear in the overlay menu when choose Placed tips have been chosen from the usecases. Coachmarks allow you to highlight the area that a tip is pointing at by removing the darker overlay from the area that the tip is pointing at.

The size and shape can also be adjusted by using the Height and Width settings along with the border-radius. The coachmark menu also allows you to add a border and set the color to help you emphasize the cutout.

Image below shows the menu where coachmark has been chosen and a manual height and width has been set.
