We are always looking for ways to improve our service. As a result, we're always releasing new features. In fact, we've released five new features this year already (In Progress section, new Acca Catcher, mobile notifications, Smarkets Integration, custom calculator options and a new standalone Acca Calculator).
Now we have one more to add to the list! We have just released instructional overlay boxes on the majority of pages on our site. These boxes, which you will have seen on other sites, will pop up when you first visit a page and give you information on what the page features, including a short video demonstrating how to access those features.
This feature is aimed at brand new users who might feel overwhelmed by the amount of features and different pages our site has.
Instructional Overlay Boxes
Here at PA, we consider ourselves to be teachers. We teach people how to make money online through matched betting. Since we launched in 2014 we have 'taught' over 100,000 members that in's and outs of matched betting.
To help with this process, the majority of pages on our site will now have an instructional overlay box that will appear when you first visit that page. These boxes will give a brief overview of the page and point you in the right direction of further information and training videos.
They will only automatically appear when you visit a page for the first time. However, it is possible to bring them up manually by clicking the small question mark on the bottom right of the page.
How Do They Work?
The easiest way to explain this would be to use an example. If you are a brand new Platinum member and you visit the Match Catcher for the first time, this is now what you will see:
To move to the next overlay, use either the right-hand direction key on your keyboard or the arrow to the right of the screen. Many of the overlays have auto-play videos on them, such as this:
To close the box please use the 'x' symbol at the top right of the overlay box, or click anywhere on the screen away from the box.
If you would like to get the box back, or view a box on a page (if it doesn't auto-open), please click the question mark symbol which is now featured on all the pages that feature overlay boxes.
If you notice any mistakes on the overlay boxes, or you think they're missing important information that other members might find useful - please tell us by contacting customer support team.
If you’re already a Platinum member, you can discuss this feature on this forum thread.
