How Does Webflow Create the New Feature Updates pop-up Modal?

Every time Webflow has a new feature come out, it auto updates you on log-in.
My question: How does Webflow achieve this using Webflow or a 3rd party system.
Thanks :slightly_smiling:

There are 2 ways to make a modal in webflow. One is using pure interactions and the other is using custom code.

Here's the custom code option http://forum.webflow.com/t/tutorial-how-to-create-a-modal-pop-up-in-webflow/1229

The same effect can be done in interactions without the custom code. http://forum.webflow.com/t/tutorial-99-9-webflow-created-modal-tutorial-freebie-clone-able-page/21726

Good Luck! Modals are awesome!

Hey @DFink I know all about creating a modal in Webflow, which is the easy part and fun part! What I was wondering was how Webflow got their New Features to automatically update users on things they haven't seen yet. When I log-in to Webflow after being away for a few days and a new feature rolls in , when I log-in I see a modal window with links to the New Features I haven't seen yet, and links to the corresponding blog posts.

Hi @Scott_Van_Zandt

This is custom code that is implemented into our platform.

But you can make modals use cookies with custom code.

Oh, that makes sense!
I need to find a way to implement something similar on a school website.
Thanks,
