Ater clicking the play button from the visitors list the session playback for that visitor will start. Here you can skip the current page, skip the playback to a specific page or stop/restart playback for current page.

This is not a video recording

UserTrack stores only the actions done by the user and the page URL they were done on. Because of this, when you watch a recording all the user actions are triggered again. It is advisible to add the CSS class UST_noClick to the important buttons (such as finalizing an order), so that the click will be shown in playback but the click action will not be triggered again.

Note: Due to performance issues the last page a user visits is not fully recorded. When a user enters a page the recording of the last page is sent. This saves a lot of db usage by reducing the number of requests sent to the server.

2.4 Admin settings

  1. Tracking and privacy settings can be changed by admin users.

  2. New users can be added by admin users. You can assign access to specific domains for those users.

  3. Each domain can have a recorded visitor limit (if this limit is reached, oldest data will be overwritten when new data comes in). You can change this limit from the dashboard overview.

2.5 Remove data from database

  1. You can delete specific clients (users) with all their coresponding data by selecting the users from the list and clicking the trash icon

  2. Bulk deleting of data for a specific domain is currently being implemented in v3.
