Let's get started with Qwilr
When you first create your account,
You'll want to dig into this page later. But for now, how about we take a look at your account's dashboard so you'll know your way around?
To get there, click on the Qwilr logo in the top left corner.
This is your dashboard
See your new page there? You can click on its title to open the page and make changes.
And that green button in the top right corner is what you'll use to create even more pages.
From your dashboard, you can either:
In this guide, we'll try out both options.
Your sample page was created from one of Qwilr's readymade templates. Let's try creating another page from a template now.
Start with a template
Qwilr is loaded with ready-made templates for all kinds of documents.
(If you'd rather build your practice page from scratch, jump ahead to Step 2.)
Now let's customize that template.
Everything you see, you can edit. Highlight any text to change the words and formatting.
Want to change a background image? Click the Swap Splash button and choose another.
Want to change background colors, spacing, or alignment? Click the Block Style button.
Make a few changes to your template to practice these editing tricks.
What a great page! Let's share it.
Want to see what your client will see? Click the Preview button anytime:
When you're ready to share your page, click the Share button:
Make sure your page is Live, and then copy the link:
Now you can paste the link into an email or message so your client can view it.
Nice work! Let's kick things up a notch now...
Build from a blank page
Now that you've tried a template, let's build a practice page from the ground up.
It's a great way to see just how flexible Qwilr is.
Whoa, a blank slate. What now?
Don't worry, you've got this. You'll build your page one Block at a time.
What are Blocks? Think of them as page sections that do different jobs. Like these:
The Text Block
Add heading, paragraphs, and inline images
The Splash Block
Add background images
The Video Block
The Embed Block
Embed maps, forms, calendars, and other kinds of content
The Quote Block
Add customizable price quotes
The Accept Block
Add an Accept button, plus E-signature and payments
Try adding some blocks.
Now that you have a couple blocks in place, let's see some other things you can do with them...
Let's change things up.
You can edit any block from the menus in the top left corner.
The Block Options menu lets you do things like:
The Block Style menu (which you might remember from Step 1) is for customizing colors, alignment, and spacing.
Give it a try! Use these menus to make some changes to your two new blocks.
