Start Here UI
Give your users a head start by installing one of Breakroom's instrumental onboarding tools. The Start Here UI allows users to select a starter avatar and access tutorials.

Overview

The Start Here UI (sometimes referred to as the Start Here panel) forms an integral part of the Breakroom conferencing system, and comes pre-equipped in all Breakroom region templates. Using the Start Here UI, visitors can select an avatar from your default avatar collection, access help videos, take a tour of the region, or engage in an optional interactive tutorial.

There are instances where you may want to remove the Start Here UI from a region (for example, if you're hosting an event for seasoned Breakroom users). In the following section, we'll explain how you can achieve this, as well as how you can replace the UI if you delete it from your region.
The Start Here UI will automatically detect the default avatar collection you've chosen and offer these avatars to your users. If you want to make changes to your default avatar collection, you can do so at any time through the Dashboard.

    Open the Region Editor by clicking the Edit Region button located at the bottom of your screen.
  2. 2.
    In the Objects window, expand the room floor by clicking the > arrow located to the left of its name. Locate the Breakroom Start Here UI object. (Alternatively, you can search for "Start Here UI" in the search field.)
