Edit a guided tour

You can modify the settings of a guided tour, such as the roles that access the tour. You can also edit, add, delete, and reorganize the guided tour steps, and apply additional formatting to the instructional text.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_tourbuilder.tour_admin or admin. If the user with embedded_help_admin is not an admin, the user needs the role that provides access to the page where the tour is being added or modified.

About this task

Use the Guided Tour Designer (GTD) to add, delete, and reorganize guided tour steps. Use the Guided Tour form only to perform tasks you cannot do easily from the GTD.

  2. In the Guided Tour form, take any of the following actions.

    • Enter or edit the description.
    • Clear the Active check box to disable the guided tour. Consider inactivating the tour until you are finished editing it. Select the check box to enable the tour when it is ready.
