Hidden to Start

Using the "hidden to start" canvas setting is one great way to add interactivity to your website. There are many uses for hidden to start canvases but a few popular ones include, contact forms, drop-down menus, and galleries. For this example, you will see how to utilize a hidden to start canvas to enhance your site's gallery experience. 

As you can see in the image below, the canvas that contains our galleries has a canvas setting of hidden to start.

Next, we need to apply the proper click action to the element we want to trigger our hidden canvas.

Note: One important item to note, once a hidden canvas has been triggered it won't go away unless commanded to by a click action or a scroll action. So for example, on a drop-down menu, the menu options will need a click action with the add action of Hide Canvas>This Canvas (or the name of the canvas) to hide the hidden canvas when a user closes the gallery, chooses a menu option, or clicks a submit button depending on how you are utilizing your hidden canvas.
