Heatmap Updates and More - Changelog

It's almost the end of 2015 - a time for reflection on days gone by, and looking forward to the year to come. 

We've been incredibly busy this year, working hard to improve Decibel Insight on many different fronts. We've been consistently updating the platform to increase the speed of data processing and reporting. Alongside that work, we've been following our own roadmap of feature releases including our page performance report, behavioral alerts and journey funnels. 

And finally, we've taken on board as much of your feedback as possible and added that into our regular sprints too. This year, customer suggestions have accounted for a large number of updates to our software - around 25% of our total development output.

In our last releases of 2015 we've made some interesting and useful updates to the tool. Here's a summary:

Updates to Heatmap Functionality

The new intensity setting for Dot Heatmaps enables you to focus on the most frequently clicked areas of a page when there are large numbers of clicks spread across the page. To adjust the intensity setting, create your dot heatmap and use the intensity slider under the "heatmap type" menu.


We've also updated attribution heatmaps to display the rank of each piece of content, making it easy to quickly understand the importance of each object on the page in relation to the page as a whole. A table of data listing ranked content and statistics is also displayed at the bottom of each attribution heatmap. 


Sorting Reports

JavaScript Error and Page Performance reports now include sorting functionality so you can view the report data in whatever order suits your purposes best. Sort error reports by:

  • browser type
  • number of errors
  • rate of errors

And sort page performance reports by:

  • page views
  • connection time
  • download time
  • render time
  • average load time

Session Replay Comments Index

We've added a drop down menu in the Session Replay view which shows all the comments applied to the journey being viewed. Clicking the arrow in the comment menu displays the related comment in a paused view of the session replay. 


3rd Party Segments

The status of 3rd party segments (ie those imported from Google or Adobe Analytics) is now displayed in the segment report. 


We love to hear from you. If you've got feedback on this latest round of updates, or some thoughts about what you'd like to see from us next, then get in touch!
