What the different types of interactivity are
The 4 types of interactivity are tool tip, window, go to page, and link. In this genially, you can explore the 4 types of interactivity:
Tool tip: A tool tip is a box that appears when you hover your mouse over an element. This box can contain images and text. Tool tips are ideal for short texts with clarifying information.
Window: Windows are boxes that appear when you click on a given element. Windows offer opportunities to insert enriched content without needing programming skills.
Go to page: This allows you to jump between the pages in your genially in the order you wish.
Link: A link is a hyperlink that redirects users to a different web page.
How to edit interactivity
When you select the option of interactivity for an element, the editor will open where you can choose the type of interactivity and personalize its content.
In the tool tips and windows, it's possible to include text, images, videos, .pdfs, twitter timelines, maps, graphics, and many other types of content. We invite you to visit the insert section to explore the potential of enriched content that you can insert in a window and tool tip of Genially.
