What is a Heatmap?

A Heatmap represents your analytics data visually over your page. By merely looking at the heatmap, you can tell
  1. 1.
    Click Maps - Most clicked areas of the page
  2. 2.
    Attention Maps - Most attention-grabbing areas of the page
  3. 3.
    Scroll Maps - Percentage of people scrolling up to a certain page depth

How can I see the heatmap for a dynamic element like a popup or element that appear on hover on my page?

With our dynamic heatmaps, you can watch the click and scroll maps for any popup or hover elements. All you need to do is to find a session recording with that particular element, go to the time where that element has appeared, and click on the "Heatmap" button at the top right corner of the session replay screen.

How can I see a heatmap for a different page version (on the same URL under the A/B test) or without a popup?

With our dynamic heatmaps, you can watch the click and scroll maps for any variant of your page. All you need to do is to find a session recording with that particular variant, go to the time with that variant, and click on the "Heatmap" button at the top right corner of the session replay screen.

Why my heatmaps are not yet populated?

There might be a few reasons:
  1. 1.
    Check your URL or URL pattern - please make sure that the format is correct
  2. 2.
    There are not enough page views of the page yet
