How to add interactions
Let’s see together how you can add videos and interactions to your publications:
While in Design Studio, you can find different interactive elements in the left panel by clicking the Interact button. We’ll go over them together.
Caption - You can add the URL, and text.
Tag - you can add the text and the URL, and it has a pulsing effect when on page.
Product tag - you can add the title, description, price, URL, button label, and add up to 3 pictures of the product.
Slideshow - You can add up to 10 images, choose the desired order, and set the loop duration for the pictures.
Slideshow overlay - here, you can also add up to 10 images, choose their order, control visibility, and set the loop duration, but they will show in an overlay.
Embed - you can embed different elements directly on the page: maps, videos, and much more.
Shopping area - You can add a mask over any area of your flipbook. This correlates to our Shopping list feature, so be sure to check that out.
Shopping button - Instead of an entire area, add a simple CTA shopping button for users to click on. Again, this is a part of our Shopping list feature.
Social media buttons - You can edit exactly the same properties as for the shopping elements, but these are used for sharing your contact information.
Other interactive buttons - the Cart, Credit Card, and both Buy this item buttons let you enter a link as for the social media buttons.
These are the interactive elements you can use in your publications. As you can see, each of them serves a well-defined purpose. Keep your readers engaged with a well-placed caption, or offer direct purchase possibilities with a product tag. Showcase images to offer more information to your readers with the help of the slideshow feature. The options are limitless.
