How to Read Insightech Scrolling Heat Maps?

Main Session Replay Interface

When viewing the scrolling heatmap, you will see a gradient of colour based on scroll rates down the page. You will also see some additional information such as the percentage of pageviews reaching each section of your webpage.

You will also see some key indicators:

  1. Minimum/Median/Maximum Fold Markers
  2. Interactive Scroll Tool-Tip
Note - A page fold shows how much of that page is seen before any user scrolling occurs. This is typically determined by the screen/browser resolution.

In the sidebar on the right-hand side of your scrolling heatmap are details on the mouse position, and the volume and percentage of pageviews that reach the point you have hovered over with your mouse.

Create a Segment From the Scrolling Heat Map View

Click on any interactive point on the scrolling heatmap report to create a segment.

This segment will filter all users on this page that have scrolled where you have clicked on the scrolling heatmap report.

  • This is done based on the pixel depth that your users reach when scrolling down on your webpage.
  • Edit this segment from Insightech's segment builder to add addtional rules or modify how these users are filtered.
