UserGuiding Now is a Google Chrome Extension that enables UserGuiding to be installed within a web page when you have no or limited access to the source code of your platform page.

It allows the onboarding material to be available for your end-users without embedding the Container Code (UserGuiding Javascript code snippet).

When would I need to use UG Now?

When you do not have access to a web page's source code to embed our container code, and you want to set onboarding materials live within that page, using the UserGuiding Chrome Extension, you may want to implement UG Now.

In this case, your users can download and configure UG Now in minutes to be able to view the onboarding material you created for them.

UG Now can be used for demo or live preview purposes and employee onboarding use cases.

How to utilize UG Now for a code-free installation?

  • Install UG Now to your Google Chrome browser through this link.

  • Copy the Container ID from the container code in your panel settings.

  • If you're not the UserGuiding account owner, request the Container ID from the responsible one who has created the onboarding material for you to preview.

  • Define the Domain URL where UG Now should become available for you.

  • Click on "Verify" to start using the UG Now Chrome Extension.

  • Once you complete the verification process, you or the UserGuiding account owner should refresh the settings page in your panel to see if the container code was installed.

  • You can refresh the page and view the materials.

Note: UG Now extension does not support code injecting for platforms with Content Security Policy (CSP).

Where can I find the Container ID?

The Container ID is located within the UserGuiding Account responsible for creating the onboarding material.

  • Go to the Containers tab under Settings in your panel.

  • Select your code and click on " </> Show"

  • The Container ID is located at the end of your container script (right before the closing </script> tag)

  • Copy and paste the Container ID to the UG Now verification field.

What is the Domain URL?

The Domain URL is the Regex rule of your preference where you want to make UG Now perform and let the onboarding material become available.

  • If you want UG Now Chrome Extension to perform on a single page, you can simply define the URL of that single page; you do not need to define a Regex rule here.


  • If you want UG Now Chrome Extension to perform on multiple pages, then you need to use the relevant Regex rules.


As you may have noticed, they all start with, meaning you need wildcard the rest of the URL with the "*" sign so the rest can take any value.
