Understanding Rage Clicks

Shivam Bhonsle Updated by Shivam Bhonsle

Rage clicks are when users repeatedly click on an element on your website in a very short amount of time. Rage clicks can reflect broken features (links, buttons, images) or a potential website error that can lead to a negative customer experience.

Insightech pin-points exactly where a user has rage clicked in each session replay for you to closely analyse user behaviour and improve the website experience for customers

How to set up Rage Clicks

  1. Navigate to Settings Tracking Code → Change Traffic Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the rage clicks settings and toggle rage clicks on
  3. Optional: Customise how your profile defines rage clicks in the input fields, or leave default settings as they are.
    1. Rage Click Definition: Set the number of clicks on an element within a certain time period (measured in milliseconds) as your rage click definition. Increasing the number of clicks, or shortening the time will have a higher accuracy, but less rage click scenarios detected.
    2. Rage Click Excluded Elements: List the CSS selector of any elements that you don't want to include in your rage click definitions. (Example: product carousel navigation or calculator buttons)
  4. Click Save Settings to start capturing your newly defined rage click events.
