Pros: Appcues is amazingly well designed for any user. It's intuitive and simple to set up. It's data and record keeping make it a breeze to maintain and manage. Their customer success team is very friendly and truly desires to see your business succeed. By using Appcues, we've almost completely eliminated new user support inquiries. It provides us a way to proactively communicate how to use our software and where to begin.

Cons: Software updates are sometimes poorly communicated. But they're quick to educate and catch you up to speed when you're in need!

Overall: Support tickets from first-time users have been almost eliminated as a result of using Appcues. This saves our company time and energy. We're able to educate users quickly and efficiently without annoying them with obnoxious additional registrations or blank fields to populate.

10/10 for feature enhancements. These guys are always adding new stuff to make my messaging great.

Pros: Feature Updates - updates that add depth but keep ease of use are great. Everytime I log in I feel like I can do more, but the design/setup is very intuitive.
Ease of Use (non-technical) - Super easy for my busy dev team to do the one time set up and I have been able to do the complete customization from there.
Support is great - Help resources and the people that answer questions/reach out are really helpful
I looked into a log of "app walk through" options at first, but this was definitely the best value and I am so pleasantly surprised how much the Appcues resources have helped me come up with new ideas to engage clients.

Cons: Cannot really think of any cons. Appcues lets you have custom events and fields, but its not the one click integration yet. The day I can just put in my Hubspot code and be able to automatically choose which fields/events I want to see will be amazing.

My experience with Appcues has been extremely positive, both in regards to the product and support.

Pros: Appcues makes it extremely easy to engage with customers. The variety of message types they offer, along with capabilities like personalized content and message flows (where you string together multiple messages to create a guided tour of your product) make it the best way I've found to welcome new users, announce new products, and encourage adoption of existing features.

Beyond the product itself, I've been very impressed with the customer experience. Support is quick to respond and the product folks I've spoken with are very receptive to feedback. They also are constantly releasing updates and new features.

Cons: Honestly I have to get fairly nit picky here as the overall product is very strong. Reporting could be stronger, but I've seen improvements over the past few months and I would expect that to continue. I'd also like to see improvements to their integration with other vendors. Right now they have strong capabilities at exporting data from Appcues to other platforms, but like another reviewer mentioned, if I could configure an integration to upload event data that's been tagged using other platforms (so that I don't have to double-tag things), then it would take Appcues to the next level.

Pros: I have enjoyed the experience with Appcues from the start. First, their Academy is very insightful and gave me many ideas to use in our own Onboarding flow. Second, I really liked that I was able to create our own flows into our system during the free trial which meant that I was able to see how it would work for our customers. Third, the ability to customise the tutorial to visually match our brand identity was very important to me. In general, the experience for me as has been basically frictionless.

Cons: It's missing a way to easily analyse your data and to see where your users drop off (only available through third-party integration). It can be done via a csv export but is not as user-friendly as the whole other experience with the system.

Overall: It has greatly improved our user onboarding and has been of big help in reducing the workload of our support staff.

Pros: It's so easy to set up amazing tooltips in our app. It requires VERY little technical knowledge and gives you tons of power.

Cons: It's expensive!! All of the tools in this category are, and this is the best one, but a price break would be very helpful for smaller teams. Maybe a different price structure?

Good product, awful management

Pros: The product is easy to use and you can create several tutorials in few hours.

Cons: They increased the price of the lower plan by 256% last winter.

That is not sustainable for start-ups and we invested time and money to use that product and build good tutorials. Less than 6 months after the start, prices are going out crazy and it makes no sense to use that provider.

I can't have any thrust for the long-term use since they do this type of action for existing customers.
Yes, when they announced that, they offered to get 3 month at previous price before getting hijacked prices... What a deal.
We have quitted like many others.

Pros: Appcues has a couple of cool options for user guidance within your software. You can run workflows like introduce new features, walking users through updates, or even popping up modals based on usage.

Cons: There are limits to what Appcues can do. As a marketer, I'm still waiting for it to integrate into HubSpot, so I can run campaigns based off of how users have engaged with the product.

Overall: I like to use the product to educate users with workflows through the product. It uses clear hotspots to guide the user journey. It also allows users to pick up where they left off when it's more convenient for them.

Pros: Appcues is cost effective, ease of use and they are continually making improvements to the platform.

Cons: Appcues can be a tiny bit buggy at times but it's improving week by week. I find making changes to style templates to a group of flows can time consuming- it has to be done one flow at a time.

Such a cool way to onboard or train customers!

Pros: This is a great product that is easy to use and customize for your team and software. It makes the onboarding process so much easier!

Cons: The only thing is that it is time intensive at the front end to make sure you get it set up correctly, but it is worth it!

Comments: Once implemented via segment, I can handle the entire process of creating, publishing, and reporting on different in-app experiences from onboarding tutorials, upsell campaigns, or as a channel for user feedback.
