Helpful resource to think through your onboarding experience

I just stumbled on this very cool website that walks you through onboarding steps for a bunch of different software. It’s a little dated but it’s very enjoyable to read, and has some very helpful info. I just thought I’d pass it along.


Thanks so much for this! I’ve been looking for onboarding resources for a while! Quick question:

Should you have no onboarding and let the user learn everything themselves? Let them just get into the app without any distractions?


Have a 5 step onboarding setup?

I think it depends on your context. Go through some of the examples on that link above. His commentary is really helpful and I think it will help you think about it for your context. I think for a first time user there needs to be some type of onboarding, especially if the users are older. Which, for your app, a lot of the users would be.
