What is Appcues?

Appcues is online software for creating in-product experiences such as user onboarding, feature announcements, etc. without writing any code. (The vendor believes it's the non-technical people who oftentimes have the best information about a software user's needs and desires.) The goal of using Appcues is to improve product engagement within the user's own customer base.

  • It is effortless to create flows and test them out in real-time instead of implementing them on production and then doing so.
  • It provides insightful analytics of how users behave and interact with your flows which helps you change them to maximize impact.
  • Segmentation has never been easy. You can get into the nitty-gritty and target each user separately.
  • I wish the survey had more options other than NPS. In that as well, we miss conditional branching options.
  • If somebody inadvertently skips a step, there is no option to provide a list of steps in the flow to the user from which they can choose to start their tour again.
  • I feel that many more features can be introduced in the theming of banners and pop-ups.

  • As a whole, Appcues is very easy to use.
  • You can build templates to easily style future modal windows and tooltips.
  • They have great customer service! Any time I've had a question our support rep always gets back to me with solutions.
  • Appcues doesn't allow you to track clicking the X in the top right corner to close a modal window. So, if a user clicks the X you can't build criteria around it to say "if someone clicks the X then do/don't show the modal again next time." You can only build criteria around buttons.
  • The checklists are great to have, but I feel they could have a lot more functionality options. Example: If you wanted to have a checklist item direct someone to another page, it would be great to be able to check that item off without having to fire an event off of a flow.
  • The NPS tool is nice, but I feel it could be more robust. We ultimately will be using a different NPS tool.

  • Implement application/feature/release tours for web applications.
  • Make changes directly on production without the need to stage them in Dev or QA.
  • Target tours, tooltips, and onboarding messages to users, groups of users, customers or any developer defined criteria.
  • There are certain limitations of where tooltips can be placed, depending on the application is built.
  • The way 'appcues' are organized in the management console can be a little more user-friendly.

  • Appcues makes the setup process extremely simple. Rather than having to build all of the cues and flows into our app, we simply installed the Appcues code which essentially lays over top our app and allows us to build any new flows we'd like and push them live without having to consult our engineers.
  • Appcues provides a variety of cue options to display to users. There are tooltips, slide outs and full modals. This allows us to target users on different pages without being too invasive.
  • Their targeting and reporting is also superb. We're able to show flows to certain users based on URL paths and other actions they've taken within our app. We can also see some great reports of users who have completed our flows and metrics on where they stopped if they did not complete a flow.
  • We were extremely surprised that there are not any Appcues used in Appcues. The app is pretty easy to use, once you figure out how to use it. There were not any type of tutorials when we logged in that quickly walked through how to setup a flow.
  • Appcues has lots of support articles, however they are almost so numerous that it was hard to find simple onboarding documentation that we found useful.
  • The different tooltips and product actions are great, but being able to customize the different cues a little bit more by changing sizes and aspect ratios could be an improvement.
