How to create "iSell" template?

We have chosen a few experiences that we wrote a step by step "how-to" to help get you familiarize with our platform.  


Before you begin creating your experiences, it will be helpful to write all the information that you want to tell your users, from there you can decide to either create an FAQ, What's New, or Onboarding.  The number of screens depends on how much information you have to update or educate your users. You will create this outline using our studio’s platform:

The very first part is to Add a new experience.  Click here for a full step by step on how to create an experience.  The next component will be to edit your screens.  Click on 'Edit' to take you to our studio.




Screen 1:  Some of the images in the screen we have created.  You should upload your images that you have created for the different experiences.  For the sake of the article, you can access our gallery and choose the images that relate to this experience in order for you to become acclimated to the platform.  We changed the icon image from the original template.  

We will be discussing the elements beginning from the bottom and working our way to the top.  Let's create the first screen.











Uploading Images: Click here for detailed instructions on how to upload an image.



Reordering elements:

If you label all your elements, you will have an easier time making adjustments.  To name the elements, click on 'Reorder' button located on the top right corner of your dashboard.  After you label an element, click on Enter or Return key, so that the name is saved.  You can also rearrange the elements; if you want an element to be in front of another element.  Make sure that once you have labelled all your elements, click the 'Reorder' button again.  To go to the next screen, click on the 'Next screen'  button.  This button is located on the top left corner of your dashboard.





















Screen Settings: You are only able to see the swipe dots once you have more than one screen.  The Screen settings can be personalized to your liking.  You are able to change the color as well as hide the screen completely.  Click here for an explanation.




Screen 2: We wanted the second screen to look similar to the first screen, with a few differences.  Hopefully you are more familiar with our studio that the next screen will be easier to create.









Screen 3: Is an exact replica of screen 2.  All you will need to do is duplicate screen 2.






The elements that will be used to set the transitions for all the screens are: 

signup • login • facebook • the fastes • the market • welcome to • icon • background • mid text • sale booster

Transitions: When you are finished with all your screens, begin to set the transitions, the flow between the screens. You will find these buttons, 'Transition Inbound' and 'Transition Outbound ,' on the top of the screen. By clicking on one of these buttons, you will navigate to our transitions studio's platform. The transitions for this experience are very simple.  


Be sure to check out our detailed tutorials about transitions.




Note: A lot of these transitions can be applied to the screens in the experience.  The original video has a different icon image than the template that we created.








Lets begin by going over what is happening during this transition.  The background is staying in the same position not moving, while the text and icon are moving in from the screen by different directions

Make sure to reorder the elements that all will be under 'Inbound' and the other elements will be in 'Outbound.'  Here is how to transition each element.

  2. login (Inbound): Switch: From Element: login
  3. facebook (Inbound): Switch: From Element: facebook

Note: Besides the transitions between screens, you have to set the 'Screen #1 Inbound' and 'Screen #X Outbound' (X=last screen), in our case 'Screen #3 Outbound'. In most cases, you just want to make sure that the main background elements, will be set as 'Move In' & 'Stays in position' | 'Move Out' & 'Stays in position' accordingly, but in this specific case we set these as 'Move In' & 'Move with screen' | 'Move Out' & 'Move with screen'.  When you are in 'Transition Inbound' from screen two, you will see both screen 1 and screen 2.  Here is where you will choose the flow from one screen to the next.  Every element is labeled for you as either inbound or outbound.
