Appcues Checklists were designed to motivate and reward new users as they learn and adopt your product by tapping into powerful psychological principles.
Checklists confirm progress visually, which urges users toward the finish line.
Completing each item is a small win that gives users a hit of dopamine.
Users are more likely to act when they are presented with a clear path to success.
I am very often asked by people what onboarding design patterns I recommend, and there are very very few where I’m just like, “total silver bullet…” But Checklists is one that I do usually recommend in a vacuum. I’m a big believer in it.
Appcues Checklists have been a game-changer for us. We never thought that we could 2X our free trial conversion with such minimal effort.
In the first two weeks that Appcues was deployed, we improved first-week retention by nearly 20%.
Thousands of companies have used Appcues to onboard and engage over 500 million end users. We’ve learned a thing or two about what works. Check out Appcues’ other highly-effective UI patterns below.
Improve product adoption and retention with self-service walkthroughs, product tutorials, and in-app messages.
Welcome new users, introduce key features, and deliver important messages with popup modal windows or fullscreen takeovers.
Still asking users for NPS feedback via email? With in-app NPS surveys you can target specific user segments and gather data in real-time.
Hotspots provide users with on-demand guidance and tips, creating a more self-service experience and reducing support burden.
Whether you want to gather user feedback or prompt a user to take action, few UI patterns are as effective as in-app Slideouts.
