1. Templates and Quick Edits 

Dot.vu provides a wide range of customizable templates across many Interactive Content types. 

Templates are ready-made content that only requires you to add your branding, such as logo, colors, and any other design aspects, and customize the content itself, such as the questions and answers of a Personality Test. The templates are also very modular, so you can easily remove and add new parts. 

To browse and choose your template, see the different Experience Types on our Templates page.  

To know more about a specific template, click to view it and learn more about the template and what it can do for you.  

After you have made your choice, click on the “Customize” button to get started. You will be redirected to the Quick Edits page. 

Our Quick Edits feature enables you to make quick and easy changes to the template. Here, you can make changes to general settings, start page, texts, lead form, and even configure prize draws for contest templates. Just follow the steps (on the left column) to effortlessly configure them. 

2. Editor 

If you wish to unlock full design freedom, customize page logic and behavior, or you want to create something new, our powerful Editor has got you covered. All parts are customizable – just let your creativity soar! 

Bear in mind, though this feature also does not require any coding, it is more complex compared to Quick Edits. 

To switch to the Editor feature, click on the Editor button located under the drop down.

3. Save & Preview buttons 

The Save & Preview buttons are conveniently located at the top right section of both Quick Edits and Editor.  

After editing a template, you can click on the “Preview” button to check if everything is in order.   

In the Preview, you can also view different device types by clicking on the “Fullscreen” button as shown below.  

All templates on Dot.vu are both adaptive and responsive – so you do not need to worry about the device type for an optimal Interactive Experience.   

4. Go Live 

Once you’re done customizing your template, it’s time to Go Live! To “Go Live” means your Interactive Content template will be available online for everyone to see. 

There are 4 options in the Go Live drop-down menu: 

1. Offline: You can either select this to have a final look at your draft before you Go Live.  

2. URL: This will be your URL once you have gone live. You can copy this link to share with others and also post it on your social media page. 

3. Put on website: You will be guided with steps to embed your content on your website. 

4. Go Live: Click this button to Go Live.  

5. Dashboard 

Within the Dot.vu Dashboard, you’ll find a range of features designed to streamline your interactive marketing efforts.  

Here you’ll be able to see an overview of your projects, giving you a snapshot of all the Interactive Experiences you’ve created. This allows for easy management of your campaigns.
