Hi Friend,

Now, it’s even easier for Creators to build guided demos!

This new capability includes:

1. Auto guides— You can add guide steps for any newly captured screens.

2. Guide templates— There are now templates that you can use for guided steps.

3. Guide panel— We moved the guide panel to the other side of the Editor to make navigating between screens even easier.

4. Minimized share modal— This will enable faster demo creation and sharing. (The Demo Creation Wizard will remain an advanced option.)

[Feature update]: Introducing Hover Interactions!

Shared by Maya • April 18, 2024

Hi Friend,

Now, you can capture any hover interactions within your product without capturing additional screens, in a way that retains your product’s interactivity!

This will allow you to showcase the true functionality and interactivity of your product.

All to help you offer a more true-to-life experience.

What are the use cases?

1. Create a pre- or post-call demo to enable your champion to share internally with the rest of the buying committee.

2. Create a semi-sandbox environment to use for live demos. This will allow you to control the narrative of your live demos when there’s no need to demo real-time data streams.

How do you use it?

1. Capture a screen.

2. Click on the “Capture Interactions” button.

3. Hover over the elements you want to record and follow the feedback loop in the pop-up to capture them.

Hi Friend,

Now, you have the ability to personalize your demos on the fly without having to create a new demo for every viewer.

This new capability works by fetching external inputs either from external sources like contact lists or an email automation system, or from internal inputs like lead forms.

What are the use cases?

1. Embed a demo with lead forms on your website or landing page— You can change the content of the variable on the screen or in the guides through the user input in the lead form.

2. Send outreach emails from a marketing automation system— You’ll be able to send emails with demos from platforms like Sendbird, Intercom, Salesloft, and Outreach.

Introducing personalized insights!

Shared by Maya • April 02, 2024

Hi Friend,

It used to be that any user had access to insights across the account, regardless of a demo’s permission level.

But now, you can display personalized insights. This means that users will have access to only insights for the demos they created or the demos that were shared with them on an individual, group, or company level.

Admins can continue to see insights for all demos by turning on the Super Admin toggle.

New feature: Create personalized demos directly from specific opportunities in Salesforce!

Shared by Maya • March 26, 2024

Hi friend,

Now, you can not only add CRM variables to templates, but also create and send interactive demos directly from Salesforce.

This means that your team can access any template directly from Salesforce and that your demos will be automatically linked to the originating opportunity because they were created directly in the CRM.

In addition, if your template includes CRM variables, they'll be automatically filled in with information from the opportunity it’s linked to.

All so you never have to leave your Salesforce workflows.

To learn more, check out this Walnut demo or read the article.

FYI: This feature is only accessible by installing the Walnut app within Salesforce.

Shared by Maya • March 21, 2024

Hi Friend,

Calling all Admins!

Now, you can define the default settings for all of the company’s demos to reduce human error and make sure your team adheres to the company standards.

This means that for demo gate, Admins can determine:

1. Whether the demo gate is on or off.

2. If non-work domains (@gmail, @yahoo, and @outlook) can access the demo.

3. If there’s a welcome message.

4. What the colors are.

5. What the preview settings are.

Admins can also create an allowed or blocked list to define who has access to the company’s demos.

FYI: Changes in the company settings will only apply to newly created demos. In addition, when a user creates a demo, they should see the pre-set values that the Admin defined.
