What's a good product for recording the way users interact with my website?

I've seen multiple products before implementing this, but can't find them now. I basically want to see video snapshots of how users interact with my web app.

    FullStory is gold. We've used it to monitor how people interact with producthunt.com, particularly when we're introducing new features/experiences. Unlike in-person user testing or tools like UserTesting, FullStory allows you to see how people use the product in their natural habitat. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love FullStory. In parallel with Drift or Intercom, you can resolve issues with any user before they even explain the problem. Saw it in action first with @hemeon using it for Design Inc. and @psuedovirtual using it for Drafted. They both convinced me I should get it.
    Other products may be ok for static marketing websites but fullstory was the only one to be able to work flawlessly with complex SPA web app in my experience. It also gives you access to JS console. Integration is 1 min if you are using Segment.

      When you're building a new products, user feedback is critical. You can gather feedback in a variety of ways, through in-person customer development interviews, surveys, and by simply looking at the data. I'm particularly fond of doing user testing (UserTesting is an awesome tool for this) although its only a "simulation" of what your users are actually doing.

      FullStory captures a screen recording of your site visitor's actions and behavior within (cue Steve Irwin impression) their natural environment. We've used it many times at Product Hunt to better understand how people are using new or beta features we're building. It's ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

    I've used Hotjar many times. Excellent. So easy to use. My advice is don't get too frustrated with your users inability to perform a simple task. Not everyone is computer literate!

    Tamboo is great for diving deep into how people are interacting with your site. On top of the general recordings and screenshots, it offers some really cool data visualizations to help you understand and take action on the recorded insights.

    (Full disclaimer: I'm the founder ๐Ÿ˜‰) I'd recommend Tamboo if you're looking for highly accurate visitor recordings, as it captures everything exactly as your users saw it. It works well with static marketing sites as well as web apps. There are also a number of features that are useful for understanding user behavior at a higher level, such as heat maps and engagement scoring. If you have multiple websites or web apps you want to run Tamboo on, there are (very affordable!) plans that will let you do just that. Plus, I'm super involved and will make sure you're well taken care of ๐Ÿ˜€

    They have lots of great features to monitor your site, Heat Maps shows you exactly where your users are clicking on your site.

    Live Click Tracking & Website Analytics

    Pros: Significantly cheaper than the competitors (at the time, I haven't looked recently). Individual sessions and heatmaps (which is 90% of the features you want) Cons: Based in Europe, so payments were kind of a pain. User Interface was slow Doesn't understand complex interfaces well Tracking and clicks oftentimes seemed off by ~100+px Work only OK on tracking mobile

      LogRocket helps me quickly understand where and how customers struggle so that I can solve their problems sooner. It's saved me a lot of time while investigating and reproducing issues.

    • I wasn't able to integrate it with my production, and couldn't find it how to do it. I would really appreciate it if you mention it like how to integrate it with production.

    This is also one of the good products. Although it is a little buggy in terms of showing the proper layout of the page in the the recorded session, but it works. and it is quite simple to set it up with good number of free recorded sessions every month. Check it out.

    Userbrain is not tracking your users directly. You just enter your URL, write a task and get weekly videos of people using your site for the first time. What they say: "Continuously receive videos of real people testing your website, web app or prototype, and make it ridiculously easy to use."

    SessionStack is a great product that allows you to see your web app through a user's eyes. You can replay and reproduce errors and quickly fix them. Also, if you are interested in a similar solution for mobile apps check out https://inapptics.com/.
