In-App Tips – CodePen Blog – Website Design Article

You might see modals like this from time to time when you log in and visit the homepage. It’s a little in-app feature education, if you will.

We chose that one recently as we’ve had some feedback from people telling us it’s too hard to find their own work, and…
