comment Should users be forced to go through a walkthrough?
This raises a good point. Users who have already adopted your system will be thankful for little bits of help. A new users might not like it. Playing Devil's Advocate for a minute, we are generally the type of people that would get upset about a forced walkthrough, but we are also the people that would benefit from it the least. The people who benefit from walkthroughs are usually the people who want some form of hand-holding (like my father-in-law that needs someone to stand by him when he wants to google something).

comment Should users be forced to go through a walkthrough?
I know that it's a polarizing topic, and I do believe that walkthroughs should be minimized / eliminated as much as possible, but there are times in which they are justifiable. This discussion has been hashed several times, so I'll just link to this for now: techcrunch.com/2013/01/05/in-defense-of-the-humble-walkthrough I'm not looking to change minds. But, for this specific instance, this specific case, there is a question about what to do while the UX is simplified.
