This can be accomplished by building training videos which teach users how to use and interpret their analytic applications. Take a look at a sample video here.
To make this learning more extrinsic, we can embed the video directly into the analytic application.
Textual descriptions in a Text Area
With the goal being to bring the learning directly to the consumer within their workspace, one solution is to add text-based tutorials directly into your analytic application. See below:
Context-specific support on visualizations
We are seeing more and more that consumers may not want training on an entire application, but more context specific training on a component of an application. As an example, a user may only want support on how to interpret a given visualization within the application. To save real estate, rather than using the text area as shown before, you can use a Qlik extension to add a modal dialog that can provide descriptive information for a given visualization on how to interpret it. The user can click on a button and a dialog will appear with a textual description of how to interpret that visualization.
Include Job Aids directly in the Application
While analytic applications should be intuitive and easy to use tools for consumers, there is always additional information that could be provided to help users with their adoption. One solution is to create a ‘job aid’ as a sheet within the application that highlights some useful features in consuming the application, like lasso selections, simple range selections, search syntax, etc…
Many of these tips are things that you can do yourself as part of the rollout of your applications to increase user adoption.
