How do the streams work and why are some streams invisible?

We'll explain what streams are all about and why they're the foundation of your experience communication

With the help of the streams, your experiences become visible. They form the basis and help you to sort your experiences thematically.

You can create as many streams as you want, rename them and change the order of the streams.

--> Edit streams

--> Change the order of streams

The streams are not only the basis for your WebApp (i.e. your Giggle page), but also the basis for the widget codes and thus the integration of your experiences on your website, in your correspondence manager, etc.

Invisible does not mean invisible everywhere!

If you deactivate the stream via "Visible in online app", i.e. make it invisible, this only affects the online app, i.e. only the display of the stream in your WebApp ( The stream can still be included via the ID, for example on your website, and remains visible there, even if you have set the stream to invisible in the WebApp.

Delete a stream only in exceptional cases!

You should never simply delete a stream if you are not sure that the stream could not be integrated somewhere else (e.g. on your website, in your correspondence tool, etc.).

Why you should make some streams invisible for the WebApp, i.e. your Giggle page?

Scenario 1:

The classic stream, which is usually hidden in the WebApp but visible on your website, is the stream with your highlight experiences
On your website, it serves as an eye-catcher on the homepage and from there the user is usually redirected to the experience subpage, where he can find all streams with all experiences. 
The highlight stream therefore "only" shows a selection of experiences, which the user will then also find in the other streams, but then sorted thematically. 
If this stream were switched to "Visible in online app" in the WebApp, then all experiences from the "Highlight" stream would appear twice in the WebApp - once in the stream with the highlight experiences and once in the topic-specific stream. This may be desirable in special cases, but is usually not the case.

Scenario 2:

The WebApp is primarily used for your guests on site and is therefore also used as a digital guest folder. If, for example, you want to make your day spa experiences visible and create a separate stream for this purpose, then these experiences will probably be of less interest to your guests on site, since the stay at the spa is usually integrated into the overnight stay. That means you can make this stream invisible for the WebApp, but still integrate it on your website and make the experiences visible and bookable via the various marketing channels (Facebook, Pinterest, Google Places, website, etc.). So you decide where and how you want to show which experiences and for that you simply use the streams.

Create streams

You can easily create a new stream by clicking the "Create stream" button in the upper right corner:

Edit streams

With the "Edit" button you can change

  1. the stream title and control the automatic translations,
  2. add experiences,
  3. set the order of the experiences.
    More about the order of the experiences in the streams can be found in the article: Sort your experiences by drag and drop or display them chronologically by stored dates

Change the order of the streams

You change the order of the streams, whether in the WepApp or on your experience subpage on your website, using the arrows in the middle:
