In this tutorial you will learn how to add a Welcome Pop Up to your course. 

A welcome popup makes it possible to send a message to the new hire when he/she logs in for the first time. It's a great way to explain about the app and to welcome your new hire. You can choose to show a video, an image (optionally with text) or both; an image and a video.

INFO: AppicalNow supports MP4 videos up to 35MB for the welcome pop-up and Order Video page. The limit is 90MB for the Video page. Please keep in mind that as the quantity of video's increases, the total load time of the app will increase aswell.

*We recommend to use Google Chrome to ensure an optimal experience when using AppicalNow.

Step 1. Navigate to courses in the menu

Step 2. Click on the gear-icon in the top right corner of the course that you want to style and click on 'Settings'.

Step 3. Click on the arrow next to 'None' at 'Welcome Pop Up' and choose whether you want to add an image, a video or both.

If you choose 'Image' or 'Both'; write a welcome message in the text field. 

Note: the salutation is automatically filled in with 'Welcome [first name]'.


If you choose to add a video, select video in the dropdown menu and click on 'Choose Video'. Search for your file on your device and click on 'open' to upload your video. If you want your video to start playing once the pop up appears, click on the checkbox next to 'Auto Play'.

If you choose to add an image, select image in the dropdown menu and click on 'Choose Image'. Search for your file on your device and click on 'open' to upload your image. The ideal dimensions for this image are 448 pixels in width and 614 pixels in height. 

If your image is larger than 448 pixels in width and 614 pixels in height, it's possible to crop the image that you have uploaded. To crop an image, click on 'Crop Image' after uploading an image and click on the crop-button (see image below).

Draw a square with the tool to make a selection. If you selected the area that you want to use, click on the green ✔ button. And click on 'save' to use it.

Hooray! You now know how to add a Welcome Pop Up to a course!
