Session Explorer enables you to see how your users interact with your form on a more granular level - right down to the order they interact with your fields.
Explore individual user sessions, compare them side-by-side and see how they really navigate your forms.
Looking to pinpoint issues with a specific field causing abandonment? Simply select the date range, the field you’re interested in and then choose an unlimited combination of filters, from default options:
and even custom attributes you can add like:
See how your user sessions play out and where they are experiencing issues - for example do they keep returning to specific fields after hitting submit?
You can search for sessions that include interactions with any one of the elements in your form. When the sessions load, they will be highlighted in yellow in the view:
This allows you to quickly scan and pinpoint the part of the session you are interested in, and see the context around interactions with that element, as you can see what happened before and after those interactions.
Session Duration and Total Field Returns are optional filters and can be used to pinpoint particularly problematic user sessions:
A selection of sessions fitting the search criteria will be displayed side-by-side, allowing you to see how the different sessions played out, what route each user took through your form and identify any trends or patterns in behaviour.
The session timeline moves from top to bottom, so simply scroll down to see what happened as the sessions progressed, or side to side to see more user sessions.
If you choose to search for sessions that interacted with a particular input, it will be highlighted in yellow within the displayed sessions showing at which point(s) during the form journey users interacted with it.
Data preparing events are when a user inputs information in a field.
A group of consecutive data preparing events with one field is referred to as a flurry.
The red outline highlights flurries where a visitor returns to a field they have already interacted with. The number of times a user has returned to a field is shown in the bottom right of flurry. For example, in the below flurry, this is the first time a user has returned to the field (their 2nd attempt to enter data):
The amount of time between these flurries is shown by three stacked dots and the amount of seconds.
At the top of the session below we can see a summary information about the user’s session including information collected about the user using custom attributes.
As you move downwards, the users’ session is displayed - what fields they interacted with, what they did in each field as well as any pauses between field interactions.
Looking at a snapshot of the session below in more detail, we can see that the user returned to the gross income field once and employment status field twice.
We can then compare this user session with others who abandoned, whose sessions were at least 600 seconds in duration and total number of field returns of 10 or more and interacted with the gross income field.
