Guide's name and your description.


Targeting is where you determine on what page or pages you want a guide or some other content to display.

A target is composed of A Rule and a URL bit and, its functioning is depicted as it is read from left to right.

Let's all look at the guide's targeting that is shown us here below:


Redirect URL is the URL of a guide's first step. In other words, when you start to create a guide on a page, the page's URL registered as Redirect URL.

Redirect URL can be defined as the starting URL and exists as a fall-back URL. Meaning, if you trigger a guide in a page which is not applying to guide's targeting rule:

  1. This triggered guide recalls its Redirect URL so that it can start since Guides can come into view only on their targeting URL(s).

  2. This means, your current page's URL changes into the URL registered in the Redirect. Guides can only start from their first steps.


Here, you can select a custom theme for your guide.

Guides that you create with UserGuiding can look native-like, if you set a custom theme to them, befitting your web application.

To learn how to create a custom theme for your guides, you can read: Creating Themes

Your existing themes will in the dropdown, ready to be selected.

As seen in the image above, you should click on the Save button before leaving the window.
