Did you know you can choose different ways of navigating between the pages of your genially? Choosing how people move through the pages of your creation can make their experience even better. You can even turn it into a totally different type of content.

We’re going to look at the available options so you can choose the one that best suits your objectives. There are three navigation modes:

  • Standard
  • Video
  • Microsite

Let’s take a look at what each one means and how to change the navigation mode of your creations.

Standard navigation mode

Steps to set up the Standard navigation mode

Geniallys with Standard navigation mode show navigation arrows on the left and right sides of each page, or both on the right side if the transition style is vertical.

This is the most appropriate navigation mode for presentations, dossiers, and any creation that follows a linear order: page 1, page 2, etc.

In this tutorial you can learn about the transition animations between pages.

Video navigation mode

Steps to set up the Video navigation mode

If you enable Video navigation mode, the pages will display on the screen automatically one after the other, like a video, without the need for any action on the part of the person viewing the genially. You can edit the time you want each page to remain on the screen.

With video mode, your audience just clicks Play to start viewing the genially. If the genially includes sound, the option to activate it will appear, as it is silenced by default.

When they hover their mouse over the bottom part of the genially, the navigation bar will display, where they can pause play to view the genially at their own pace.

In this tutorial you’ll find more information about this navigation mode.

Microsite navigation mode

Steps to set up the Microsite navigation mode

If you activate Microsite navigation mode, the navigation arrows disappear, along with any other visible way of changing pages.

When you enable this mode, you’ll need to include an element (icon, image, etc.) on each page and apply the Go to page interactivity to it in order to allow people to move around the genially.

This navigation mode is useful for creating microsites, quizzes, escape room games, non-linear presentations, or even linear presentations with personalized navigation arrows.
