Interactive In-App Tours (Employee Management)


This article explains how you can use interactive in-app tours to familiarize yourself with and configure various functions in Personio.


What are the interactive In-App tours?

Personio’s interactive in-app tours provide Personio administrators with step-by-step guidance for the individual functions available in Personio and support you in configuring the various sections.

The tours take you through the settings for the various functions by means of examples so that you can apply what you have learned as you set up your own account. Complete the various tours and then immediately apply your new knowledge by directly customizing your account in line with your company’s specific requirements.

From now on we offer many of our tours in German and English.


Where do I find the interactive Tours?

After logging into their Personio account, administrators can find the tours in our Personio Support Hub. Click on the signpost icon next to your avatar to have the available tours displayed.



All in-app tours are divided into chapters. Once you start a tour, clear instructions guide you through the various steps:


Please note that your progress as you complete any of the interactive tours cannot be saved. We therefore recommend that you take the time to complete a tour all the way through once you start it.
