To create Guidethroughs (step-by-step web application or website tours) or Training Guides (downloadable docx end user training guides including screenshots and step-by-step target application process instructions) after signup you will need to install the Guidethrough Developer Chrome Extension.

Adding the Guidethrough Developer Chrome Extension to your Chrome browser is a simple process and can be done in any one of three ways:


1. From your Chrome browser:

This is the fastest and easiest way to get started with Guidethrough.




2. On first login to the Guidethrough web app portal:

  • When you first login to your Guidethrough Developer Portal, Guidethrough will check to see whether you have already installed the Guidethrough Developer Chrome Extension. If the extension hasn't already been installed, Guidethrough will display a modal window to guide and enable you to quickly access the Chrome Web Store. Clicking on the "Install Chrome Extension" button takes you to the Guidethrough Developer extension in the Chrome Web Store. Then just click on "Add to Chrome" and follow the prompts.



3. At any time after first login:

  • From within the Guidethrough Developer Portal, using the navigation menu on the left, go to Settings > Developer Chrome Extension and click on the "Install Chrome Extension" button. Clicking on the "Install Chrome Extension" button takes you to the Guidethrough Developer extension in the Chrome Web Store. Then just click on "Add to Chrome" and follow the prompts.





Once the Guidethrough Developer Extension has been added to your Chrome browser, Guidethrough's G icon will be visible on your Chrome toolbar to show you that Guidethrough has been added to Chrome and is ready to use.

Go to a new page (or refresh the current web page you are on at the time) and this will display Guidethrough's Developer Extension login screen.

Just login with the account credentials that you used when you signed up.


On login, the Guidethrough Developer Extension will open as a sidebar and is ready for use.

The extension will allow you to capture, edit, preview and publish Guidethrough web tours and docx training guide content you create.
