The SwipeGuide Instruction CMS

Create and publish instructions in minutes with our unique drag and drop editor. 

Up and running instantly, the SwipeGuide Instruction CMS makes it simple to create visual step-by-step instructions. The visual drag and drop editor allows editors to easily structure their content, design instructions, and re-use existing content throughout.

Easily adjust the font, color, size, or style of your instruction content with the Rich Text Editor.

The human brain processes visuals 400% better than text. That’s why all instructions created with the SwipeGuide Instruction CMS combine clear visual information with direct, task-centered text. Use video, images, gifs, or illustrations. (We support .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .gif, .svg, .mp4, .mov, and CAD files)

Crop, resize, and autoscale visuals on any mobile device. Use the built-in markup tool to amplify visual focus points.

Create intelligent or trigger-based instructions by making them context-aware. Our instructions connect human and machine.
