Driving self-service through Launchers is a great way to allow your users to imprint their own pace into their own experience with your product.

However, you might still want to give them a good sense of direction, and checking or hiding items as they complete them is a great way to do so.

Quick access

You can turn any Launcher you create in Chameleon into a checklist, from the Interactions sections of the Builder. This will turn all the items in your Launcher into completable actions for your users, regardless of their type.

Next, you will be able to adjust the checkmark color and choose whether to hide your items after completion. The items in your Launcher will start to be checked as they are completed by your users. πŸ˜‰

Launcher checklist options from the Builder

πŸ’‘ To keep your users engaged, you can also add a progress bar in the Launcher and its widget that will let users know how far they've come.

Hiding items upon completion is the option that gives users direction and motivates them to complete the different Launcher items you add to guide them.

Each item can be individually configured to be hidden once it is completed; πŸ‘‡ and, if all items are hidden, the Launcher will automatically disappear.

To configure an item to hide upon completion, simply click on that item in your Launcher, and toggle the Hide when complete option from that item's configuration panel.

πŸ’‘ You can also configure an Empty State to show when all items have been completed, to keep the Launcher on your page. And add notifications to let users know when new items have been added for them to check out.

Each item type has a different standard event that marks it as completed; for example, Tour items will be completed as the Tour is completed, or started.

However, you can also use a custom event as that item's Completion Criteria, so that the item's goal will be more accurately represented. You can define an item's success event from that item's configuration panel, under the Completion Criteria option.

Any events you're tracking or sending to Chameleon will be shown here. Review all your tracked events on your Chameleon Dashboard, and supplement what you have via our Integrations, API, or CSV imports.
