When someone new joins your organization, they need time to get onboarded as they familiarize themselves with the work environment. And digital work environment is no exception. Some people might have never worked with Slack, Notion, or Salesforce. And they might need guidance on how to get the most out of such tools.
Onboarding is an all-encompassing process. It doesn’t have to be difficult, though; many tools can make it a straightforward process. One such tool is Tango.
Simplified workflows and to-do lists
US-based Tango launched in 2017, offering several free and paid products to help teams and customers onboard within an organization or learn the best ways to get the most out of a product. If you don’t like writing extensive documentation on your SOP or creating how-to guides, Tango could solve this pain point for you.
Just because you know your product by heart, doesn’t mean your users do.
To make things easier for them, you need to create practical user manuals. The good news: it can be easy and fun! Check out our latest blog and learn how.https://t.co/TTYolAYNqK

For example, if you have a new employee who’s never used Notion before, you can create a guide on making a template, sharing a template, or taking advantage of its other features. You and the employee can save time on training and onboarding, and they can start using Notion immediately.
It takes one to Tango
To test Tango, I installed the free extension on my Chrome browser, which was easy. You can register/sign in with your existing Google account. I used the TechAcute website as an example of a how-to guide subject. The guide was about finding my previous post and upvoting it.
Creating the workflow was fairly simple. All I had to do was click on the Chrome extension once I was on the TechAcute page. After that, I clicked on the large purple button.
The workflow begins automatically. You can click on the links, buttons, or images that make up the steps required once they’re highlighted in orange.
Once you’re done, click on the Tick at the bottom left corner of the screen to go to your workflow. You can edit it in your workspace or invite other people to collaborate on it.
My workflow comprised of four steps:
- Open TechAcute.
- Click on “next page”.
- Click on my article.
- Click on “yes”.
I was able to export the workflow as a PDF and can even send it as an email to other team members. Overall, it was a simple tool to use. I could see many teams finding a use for it, especially those developing brand-new software products that their customers might need help with.
The free version of Tango is a Chrome browser extension that helps to create step-by-step guides with screenshots in a matter of seconds with a click of a button. Meanwhile, the paid versions are Desktop- and browser-optimized. If you’re looking for alternatives to Tango you can also have a look at solutions like ClickUp.
