How do I change the orientation of hint messages in the Impact Dashboard?

Impact allows you to select from a variety of hint message orientation options.

Note: Message orientation settings are only available for Hint Message types.

What orientation options are available?

You can select from the following orientation options:

  • Automatic orientation will move the position of the hint message around the selected element (context) based on the scroll position of the user. This is the default option as your message will always be displayed where it fits best.

  • Left orientation displays your hint message on the left side of the selected element (context).
  • Top orientation displays your hint message above of the selected element (context).
