Actions

Actions are an easy, but powerful, method of adding interactivity to your experience without having to write any code.

Adding an action

Actions can be added to a number of objects in Designer. To add an action, select on a component that supports interaction (buttons, text, images and videos). Once selected, an Actions dropdown will show in the Properties Panel.

In the actions dropdown select the action you'd like to assign to the object (more information below) then fill in the relevant information based on the chosen action.


On Tap Actions

On tap actions are triggered when the user taps on an object in the scene. By default, objects will have No Action assigned to them.

Below is a list of on tap actions that can be assigned to objects:
