Click heatmaps provide a detailed understanding of testers' behavior on the screens in your prototype. Read on to learn how they work.
What are click heatmaps in Maze?
A click heatmap is a representation of clicks on a particular screen. Maze allows you to see the exact click position of each tester on screen. Once you're viewing a click heatmap, you can filter the information you see to only display clicks and testers you need.
Aggregated heatmaps vs. tester heatmaps
Maze records aggregated heatmaps and individual tester heatmaps.
- Aggregated heatmaps are recorded for testers who complete your maze via paths for each mission outcome: direct success, indirect success or give up/bounce. You can find these heatmaps under the tab Aggregated paths.
- Tester heatmaps are recorded for each tester that completes a mission in your maze. You can view these heatmaps under the tab Tester paths in your mission results.
- ⬅️ ➡️ to go to the previous or next screen/path/tester
- ⬆️ ⬇️ to move to the prior or next screen in a path or tester heatmap
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:
- 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
There are three ways to view a click heatmap:
- Heatmap: a graphic representation of clicks on a screen
- Clicks: actual click position for each click on a screen
- Image: a plain image of a screen
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.
The click areas you create will include the number of clicks, misclicks, and the clicks’ order with the tester ID.
