Who changed what? Follow the audit trail





When collaborating with your colleagues, sometimes it can get confusing. Did someone edit your event from last week? Or are you wondering who added that extra step to your favorite funnel?

With the audit trail, you don’t have to ask around anymore. The audit trail will show you a chronological list of all activities that someone did in your company. So you will know, for instance, your colleague, Frank, changed the funnel on Thursday at 6:18 PM.

Accessing the audit trail is easy – just go to settings -> general and scroll down to the audit trail section. Remember – only the admin or the owner has the rights to use this feature and access all information.

Starting today, everyone can try out the audit trail for free for 1 month. After that period, please contact our sales rep to access this premium feature, as the audit trail is not a standard part of any of our packages.

Worried about anomalies in your events?






Rest easy. In Smartlook, you can turn on anomaly detection with a single click. If any spike or surge happens, you’ll get an instant notification.

Turn on this new feature for any event you wish to monitor. Go to the events and click on the anomaly icon. Then, turn on anomaly detection, and set up when you want to get notifications. Save the settings and relax – you’ll know about every anomaly in your events from now on.

We’re rolling out event anomalies for everyone to try. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to test the feature in your project – even if you’re a free plan user.

Coming soon – Custom detection

In our upcoming update, you will have the option to choose the exact rules for triggering anomalies. That way, you’ll avoid any unnecessary alarm and only get a notification when something is really happening.

The threshold for triggering anomaly detection can be,

  • percent deviation or absolute value

Manage your organization all in one tab





We’ve introduced a “General” settings tab. Here, you can have a quick look at the most important information about your organization and adjust them accordingly. When you want to view your active projects, check what roles your members have, or manage your organization, that’s the place to go to.


In the “Organization” settings, you can rename your organization, manage blocked IP addresses, and add integrations. You can also check the plan usage. View how many sessions, heat maps, events and funnels you’ve created. Redistribute events across your projects. If you need to, you can also upgrade to fully cover your current needs.


One place – all the information you’ll need.

Always keep in touch with the latest developments

However, please keep in mind that priorities can sometimes change, so don’t bet your life on our roadmap. One thing you can be sure of though – we’re working as fast as we can.

Funnel categories are here!






When you have just a few funnels, all of them are visible at once and it’s easy to find the one you need. With time, you will track multiple funnels, and looking for a specific one can take too much of your time.

If your funnels get a bit messy, now you can keep them in order by using Funnel categories. Add specific categories and organize your funnels just like you’d do it with events!

You can add, edit, or delete funnel categories exactly the same as with event categories. Go to the menu and select the folder icon. Choose the right name for this category and save it. When you edit or create new funnels, you can choose the matching category for them.

Keep all your funnels handy and nicely sorted into useful categories. Know exactly where they are for when you need them!

Switching organizations





Our new permission system gives you more control over roles for organizations and projects. Now you are able to invite users to your organization without any confusion which workspace you are currently in.

We’ve introduced organization switching - Simply navigate to the bottom left of the dashboard to find your organization icon. Then you can easily toggle between organizations.

You’ll be able to quickly see which projects you are modifying and which projects you are updating for your subscription.

After switching the organizations, Smartlook will load the projects of the organization you switched to. In addition, when updating your subscription, you will see a list of all affected projects.

Mobile heatmaps reinvented: Galleries 📱





We’ve added Heatmap Galleries to Smartlook Mobile Analytics.

Here are some of the key changes we’ve made to Mobile heatmaps:

-Heatmaps now have a separate tab on the dashboard.

-You can now create galleries for all of the fragments of your application.

-Galleries are created using customizable date intervals.

Here is how a gallery looks:

Heatmap Gallery.png (A gallery will contain all the heatmaps for every fragment in your application)

You can also use the current recordings you have now in your account to create a retroactive gallery.

Mobile heatmap galleries are for all users to gain immediate insights… It’s all there at your fingertips.

Heatmaps galleries have three of our goals in mind: accuracy (heatmaps), accessibility (no developers required), and simplicity (easy setup - one location).

As always, we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback to make Smartlook even better.

Funnels are evolving:





The latest addition to Smartlook is the ability to break down funnels.

Funnels already help you figure out how successful you are in moving people to take action. Now, Smartlook allows you to dive deeper into your funnels by breaking down each step of a funnel.

Here is how Funnel breakdowns look Funnel breakdown moded 2.jpg

The breakdown table provides a clear visualization of the funnel data

And you can break down funnels by country, city, state, browser, device, and operating system by default.

Moreover, we’ve also made it possible for you to set up and add your own custom properties so that your team can decide for themselves which properties are valuable for your situation.

And it takes two clicks to break down a funnel. Here’s an example of how quickly you can break down a funnel to find out which countries have the highest conversion rate:

Retention Tables are here to help





Keeping track of your customer behavior, satisfaction and retention has never been more important.

Thankfully, Smartlook has a new feature which allows you to track user engagement.

Retention tables are the Ultimate weapon to build customer retention.

Retention tables display groups of visitors who perform an action in a similar time period - The table then tells you how many of the customers continue the behavior - and for how long.

Retention tables work with Events… And Smartlook tracks every event!
