When a user is editing their template there is a help area that they can click (top right) to get some general information to help them understand how to perform common tasks. To give them even more specific help, you can create detailed instructions for each of your templates.
We’ve added a new Instructions page to the admin area where you can create instructions for your templates. You can make these as detailed as you feel is necessary and you can make as many as you need. You can apply one instructions file to each template but you can apply the same instructions file to as many templates as you’d like.
You can style the text in your instructions, add links, pictures, and even video to help guide the user in editing your templates.
For all of your templates that have instructions assigned to them, a new button will be shown in the help area that reads: “Seller Instructions” as well as a link when the user hovers over the template thumbnail. When the user clicks this button, a window will appear over the page where they can read and scroll through the instructions. If there aren’t any instructions assigned to the current open template, the button will not be shown.
How to create new instructions
- Navigate to the Instructions page in the admin area.
- Click “Add New”.
- Enter the text for the instructions in any way that you feel would be helpful to the user.
How to assign instructions to a template
In order for your instructions to show up when a template is open, you’ll need to assign those instructions to the template. Follow the directions below.
- Navigate to the Templates page in the admin area.
- Click “Edit” for the template that you want to assign instructions to.
- In the template details modal, select the instructions from the Instructions box.
Please note, you’ll need to create your instructions first then assign it to a template or to multiple templates. You can assign a single instructions file to as many templates as you’d like.
