Another type of interactivity you can choose in Genially is an invisible area. This feature allows you to make parts of your canvas interactive where you couldn't before. Now you can add interactivity to parts or an image or any part of your canvas where there aren't any elements inserted.

What an invisible area is

An invisible area is an element in Genially that you can place wherever you like on the canvas and which you can add interactivity to without needing a visible interactive element (such as a button).
 

When to use an invisible area

Usually, it's used to add interactivity to elements that you normally wouldn't be able to--like certain areas of your canvas or parts of an image--because they're not broken up in a way that allows you to make each piece interactive.


Tip: It's also very effective in gamification and breakouts because it allows you to hide clues that the viewer won't see until they pass their cursor over the area where they're hidden.

How to use an invisible area

To use an invisible area:


1. In the Editor, click on the button Interactive Elements.


2. Click on Invisible Area.


3. Drag it to the canvas and place it over the area you want to make interactive. You can adjust its dimensions to fit your needs.


4. Just as you would with any other element, add the interactivity you need and save your changes.
