Breakdown of core features
With Guidebook’s drag-and-drop platform, anyone can build a custom app and web experience without a technical background.

Users are able to generate two types of reports from the Guidebook Builder. These reports, the User engagement report and the session/list items report, export both an overview of actions taken in the guide, as well as information about individual users and the actions they took.
The User engagement report presents information to determine the most valuable users. On the other hand, the Session/list items report shows data per session and custom list items to identify users’ interests.
