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!
