Recognise new SUSI users and Welcome them

Recognise new SUSI users and Welcome them

SUSI web chat application is up and running now. It gives better answers for most of the questions that users ask. But for new users application does not display a welcome message or introduction about the application. It is a distraction for new users. So a new requirement arrived that is to show a welcome message for new users or give them a introduction about the application.

To give a introduction or to show a welcome message we need to identify new users. For that I used cookies.
I added a new dialog to show welcome message and introductory video. Then placed below code in the DialogSection.js file which contains codes about every dialog-box of the application.

 <Dialog
          contentStyle={{ width: '610px' }}
          title="Welcome to SUSI Web Chat"
          open={this.props.tour}
        >
          
            width="560"
            height="315"
            src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9T3iMoAUKYA"
            gesture="media"
            allow="encrypted-media"
            >
          
          <Close style={closingStyle} onTouchTap={this.props.onRequestCloseTour()} />
        </Dialog>

We already have installed ‘universal-cookie’ npm module in our application so we can use this module to identify cookies.
I used this way to check whether user is new or not.

           <DialogSection
             {...this.props}
             openLogin={this.state.showLogin}
              .
              .
              .
              onRequestCloseTour={()=>this.handleCloseTour}
              tour={!cookies.get('visited')}

           	/>

Now it shows dialog-box for each and every user we don’t need to display the welcome message to old users so we need to store a cookie in users computer.
I stored a cookie in users computer when user clicks on the close button of the welcome dialog-box.
Below function makes new cookie in users computer.

  handleCloseTour = ()=>{
   this.setState({
     showLogin: false,
     showSignUp: false,
     showThemeChanger: false,
     openForgotPassword: false,
     tour:false
    });
    cookies.set('visited', true, { path: '/' });
 }

 

Below line sets a cookie and { path : ’/’ } makes cookie accessible on all pages.
