The user needs help to understand a complex user interface.
Display text, arrows, and images atop a modal overlay explaining the function of the interface.
Coachmarks represent multiple help call-outs that appear on a transparent overlay. By using text and often arrows and images, they point to and explain the functionality of the user interface.
Coachmarks can help explain overly complicated or novel user interfaces to users, but they do not help solve the underlying problems of poorly composed interfaces. Consider other onboarding patterns before settling with coachmarks.
This and others patterns are available and ready to use in this massive Wireframe Bundle. Suitable for a wide variety of projects: Website and landing pages, Ecommerce, Dashboard, Flowchart and iOS.
