Learn how to set target elements for boardme tooltips.
Whenever you want to show a Tooltip type guide in boardme, you will be asked to set the Target Element for the Guide.
The Target Element represents the HTML element to which the Tooltip is pointing. Cards and Modals can be shown without a target, but a tooltip's purpose is to point to a specific element on the user's screen.
The technique boardme uses to select the element, is the exact same technique Front-End developers and designers use to style the elements in the HTML.
No need to worry though, the first part of this guide will walk you through how you can automatically generate these selectors by pointing and clicking on elements on the screen, and without knowing anything about HTML or CSS.
Not technical? No problem.
