In this tutorial on Reveal interactivity, we’ll show you how to make the most of this interactivity, even without a magic wand. In this tutorial you’ll learn:

What is Reveal interactivity for?

This interactivity makes one element appear when you click on another, so you no longer have to find workarounds to achieve this effect in your creations! 

Best of all, you have complete control over how it appears, displaying the information whenever you want, with just one click. What can you use it for? Read on!

  • It’s the perfect kind of interactivity for gamification: reveal clues, make elements appear... Here’s a tip: Try it with click animation to achieve awesome effects. 
  • You can also organize the content of your presentations and reveal compelling information (or even a spoiler or two) at the click of a button. Your speech will be unforgettable.
  • Another plus: add additional information to the answers of your quizzes and tests so that your audience can reveal the answers at the click of a button. Perfect for a rainy day or even evaluation day. 

How to set up Reveal interactivity

Setting up this interactivity is easier than frying an egg. You just need to choose 2 elements that are visible on the same page. To make it easier, we’ll call them:

  • Element A: the element to which interactivity is applied and which must be clicked to reveal element B.
  • Element B:  the element which will remain hidden until element A is clicked on.

Have you decided which two elements to try it with? Great! Now just follow these steps:

  1. Select element A and click on the interactivity icon above it to open the interactivity menu.
  2. In the interactivity menu, select the Reveal option.
  3. On the canvas, click on element B and then on Save

All set!

TIP: To modify the element B that you’ve selected, repeat the process and change the element you want to be revealed when you click.

Once applied, both elements will be joined by an arrow in the Editor, which indicates the flow or order in which they will appear.

We probably don't need to tell you, because you've probably figured it out by now, but this interactivity opens up a whole new world of possibilities to help you take your content to the next level.
