Working with the ASAP Extension for Google Chrome

Working with the ASAP Extension for Google Chrome

Introduction

The ASAP extension for Google Chrome is a nifty tool that helps you bridge your website with your knowledge base for the benefit of your customers/site visitors. This extension enables you to easily configure tooltips that display relevant help articles when customers hover over your website content. For instance, if you run an e-commerce business and you offer refunds for certain products, you can mention the refund option in the product detail page and display a tooltip that links to a help article on how to initiate a refund. 

Each tooltip contains a brief gist of the help article and a View More link, which when clicked opens the complete article in the ASAP window on the webpage. You can display as many tooltips as you want on a webpage to ensure that relevant help articles are easily accessible for site visitors. 

Additionally, you can provide a quick walk-through of your site/product to site visitors, using tooltips. All that you need to do is just create a guide by sequentially arranging the tooltips configured. 

The extension works in tandem with the ASAP add-on for websites. Therefore, to be able to use the extension, you must first make sure that the add-on is enabled on your website. 


Installing the Extension

To install the ASAP extension to your Google Chrome browser, perform the following steps:
  1. Visit this URL to open the detail page of the ASAP extension.
  2. Click the +ADD TO CHROME button. 


A confirmation message appears.


3. Click the Add extension button.
The extension is downloaded and automatically installed to your Chrome browser. The extension icon appears on the toolbar of the browser, next to the address bar.


Adding Tooltips to Webpages

To add tooltips to your website or specific webpages, perform the following steps:

  7. In the Choose Article field, start typing the title of the article that you want to link to the tooltip.

Creating Guides

A guide is a sequential arrangement of tooltips, which helps provide a walk-through of your site/product to site visitors. More than one tooltip are required to create a guide. Therefore, make sure to first create all the tooltips required for the sequence you want to display.

    A preview of the guide opens in a new tab. 
  6. Check if the guide works in the sequence intended. 
  7. Switch to the ASAP window and:
    • If the sequence of the guide works as intended, click the Save button.
    • If the sequence of the guide needs to be changed, rearrange the tooltips as required, and then click the Save button. 
The guide is created. 

Editing Guides

Editing a guide involves enabling or disabling tooltips or rearranging the order of tooltips.

To edit a guide, performing the following steps:

  2. Click the name of the guide configured for the page.



    The URL of the page and the tooltips configured on the page appear. 
  3. Enable or disable tooltips using the corresponding toggle keys and rearrange the tooltips if required. 
  4. Click the Preview button. 
    A preview of the guide opens in a new tab.
  5. Check if the guide works in the sequence intended. 
  6. Switch to the ASAP window and:
    • If the sequence of the guide works as intended, click the Update button.

The guide is updated.

Managing Tooltips and Guides in Zoho Desk

Besides in the ASAP window, you can manage tooltips and guides from the ASAP setup page in Zoho Desk too. Here's how you can do it. 

As soon as you install the ASAP extension in Chrome and start creating tooltips, an extra tab called GOOGLE CHROME EXTENSION appears in the ASAP setup page. 



On this tab, you can also view the metrics related to the tooltips and guides you created. These metrics include the number of tooltips and guides on your website and the number of times each tooltip was viewed.

To disable a tooltip, hover over the name of the tooltip, and click the Disable toggle button that appears.



The tooltip is disabled immediately. 

Managing Guides
