The best practice is to populate your application with hints on all the elements that might need more explanation. In this case, more is better (unlike Tours).
Videos are a great way to describe more complex functionality. Videos from YouTube, Vimeo, and Loom can be linked with ease.
You can link a Tour to text in the same manner as a URL link. Typically you'll want to link the tour to a button. A great aspect of this route is that users can replay tours whenever they want.
It's easy to offer additional information via linked articles from a hint. You can even host articles on your Knowledge base to take advantage of the connection between articles and hints, tours, or other adoption tools.
It's easy to ask your customers for information with our built-in Typeform option. Simply select "Typeform" in the new section dropdown and use the URL link to your Typeform to integrate it with Product Fruits.
If you are afraid that the screen may be cluttered with too many hint icons, there are several things you can do:
1. Choose a smaller version of icons.
2. Show the hint icon only when the cursor is over the element, using on hover function.
3. Until viewed will show the icon only, well..., until viewed.
4. Using dismiss forever flag, the user can decide not to see this hint (and its icon) anymore.
