Introducing the New Mouseflow
You might remember us mentioning Mouseflow before in some of our previous posts about heatmap systems. Now Mouseflow released their latest version which is packed with new and improved features and a brand new user interface. Time to give you an update.
What is Mouseflow?
Mouseflow, this month’s sponsor, is a powerful web analytics tool, specialised in recording mouse movements, clicks and keystrokes. From those recordings, various heatmaps are being generated.
Redesign and improved features
Mouseflow redesigned the entire interface, making it easy to navigate and switch between pages and heatmap types with one click. They have also introduced responsive layouts, meaning that when you resize the window, all data is adjusted accordingly. The dashboard gives you a perfect overview of Mouseflow’s two most important features: “Recordings” and “Heatmaps”.
Apart from the redesign, Mouseflow has been fine tuning its key features as well. They improved the playback functionality and introduced several new features such as filters, funnels, bookmarking and sharing views, tagging and so much more.
You can take recordings quite literally. Mouseflow records the entire journey of your visitor, even across multiple pages, which you can then play. It doesn’t matter which device, browser or OS, everything is being recorded.
From those recordings, five useful heatmaps are being created: clicks, movement, scroll, attention and geo location. Looking at scroll depth, click locations and mouse movements, basically your customer’s online behaviour, will give you a much better understanding of how they use certain features, how they fill out forms and navigate through your website.
Most of us are familiar with the click heatmap, which is the most traditional one. The click heatmap of Mouseflow, however, collects additional information on those clicks as well. The amount of hovers, the hover order or the time before the click are just a few of them.
By collecting the mouse movements of your visitors on a webpage, Mouseflow creates a visual representation of what visitors are looking at and focusing on within the page.
The scroll heatmap represents, you guessed it, the scrolling behaviour of your visitors. Not only does it show how many people scrolled till where on your page but also how long it took them to reach a certain point.
The attention heatmap lets you find out what content your visitors care about the most. Do they read everything or do they skip certain parts?
While most tools just provide you with a list of countries, Mouseflow creates a heatmap from those locations.
