The Maze click heatmaps allow you to have a detailed understanding of testers' behavior on your screens. Read on to learn how they work.

1. What are Maze click heatmaps?

A click heatmap is a representation of clicks on a particular screen. Maze allows you to see the exact click position, for every tester, screen, and path in your Maze, and create click areas. Click heatmaps also allow you to filter what you see and display specific clicks and testers.

To get click heatmaps, you need to test your Maze with testers, and then access the results dashboard of your Maze.

2. Dashboard visualization: how results are displayed in Maze

Aggregated - All test results aggregated by mission outcome and testers' path
Sessions - View test results for every individual session
Screens - Test results at the screen level

You can navigate between the click heatmaps for screens, paths, and sessions to view results at different levels.

TIP: to move between screens, sessions, and paths use your keyboard arrows:

⇆ to go to the previous or next screen/path/session/tester
⇅ to move to the next screen in a path or session.

3. How to filter the information on your click heatmaps

→ Filter clicks and testers

Filter the clicks and testers on a click heatmap using the top navigation bar. Click on the dropdown and choose to display:

All or selected clicks from testers

This option allows you to display clicks by the order they were performed by testers. In addition, you can also see how many testers performed every click type.

All or selected testers

This option allows you to display only the testers you need for review. In addition, you can also view information about every tester:

- ID
- Duration: time spent on screen
- Clicks: the number of clicks performed on this screen by the tester
- Misclicks: the number of misclicks performed on this screen by the tester

→ View options

When you hover on the screen you can change between different screen views:

A. Heatmap
B. Clicks
C. Image

You can download the image file with the chosen screen display and share it with your collaborators.

→ Click areas

Use Click areas to create particular areas on your heatmap that show clicks, misclicks and the order of the clicks performed by testers. The areas you create will appear on the right side of the screen.

- To create a Click area, click and drag on the screen. You may create as many areas as you need.

- The click areas you create will include the number of clicks, misclicks, and the clicks’ order with the tester ID.
