What are Containers?

Containers in UserGuiding are JavaScript code snippets that are used to install UserGuiding on a web platform.

Later, each content you create such as guides, hotspots, checklists, etc. can be placed inside the embedded container code, ready to be displayed within your web app.

You can find them in Settings > Containers at UserGuiding Panel.
