User Interaction

Onboarding (on-boarding)

The process of educating a new user about how to use an app. It originally came from the HR area, but it now also means the whole workflow, including pop-ups, splash screens with tips, etc. An app needs onboarding if it uses non-standard interactions or UX, or has complex logic or multiple tasks.
