Reminder:  Steps for getting started with Apty content creation:

STEP2: Install Apty Studio for creating content (covered in this article)
STEP3: Install Apty Client for testing and displaying content

Apty Studio is implemented as a native application and is one of the crucial components of the Apty application. It is the primary tool for connecting with a browser and creating instructional content (such as Workflows, Validations, Tooltips, Launchers, and Announcements), and laying it over the surface of the hosting application with an ability to preview the results in a live mode.

Apty Studio is compatible with all modern browsers but is recommended to be used with Google Chrome. Although adding new elements to the surface of a hosting application implies JavaScript code injection and interaction with DOM elements of the opened page, Apty Studio covers 90% of common use cases for creating content and validating input from the end user and requires no coding skills from the System Administrator for adding commonly used instructional materials. Nonetheless, Apty gives room for adding functions for performing more sophisticated procedures for specific use cases.

To start working with Apty Studio, Administrators and instructional content creators need to install the Studio application available for download from the Admin Console.
