Announcing a New Mouseflow Chrome Extension: Downloadable Heatmaps


At Mouseflow, we’re all about innovation. If there’s a highly requested feature, we work tirelessly to make it happen. Recently, many of our clients requested an option to download heatmaps into an offline image. Due to the intricacies of rendering heatmaps in a browser, this made it difficult to allow for offline downloads. How did we solve this issue?

We built a Google Chrome extension exclusive to Mouseflow.

Most users view heatmaps as a picture but, at Mouseflow, we’re taking it a step further. Our heatmaps dynamically render data that is stored in your browser. The data utilized in generating these heatmaps is selected based on your segment/filters (date range, device, browser/OS, etc). The data is then provided as an overlay in our heatmap window.

With the launch of the new Chrome extension, users can now download any heatmap they want from within the Mouseflow UI. Need to show your boss a printout of user activity on your site? This is the tool for you.

Downloading this extension is easy! See below on how to add this extension to your Google Chrome browser.

Our Heatmaps are Now Fully Responsive


We all know responsive web design is the best thing ever. Nobody disputes that!

Previously, in Mouseflow, if you wanted to see a heatmap rendered for a particular breakpoint, you'd have to resize your screen. Not anymore! We're pleased to announce that our heatmaps are now fully responsive which means you can switch between different device types directly from within our heatmaps.

Here's how to switch between device types (Desktop, Tablet, Phone, or All Devices) - it couldn't be easier:

Introducing Two-Factor Authentication


At Mouseflow, we take privacy and security seriously. Today, we want to go the extra mile and introduce a feature that we feel takes our security to a new level: Two-Factor Authentication.

This provides secure access to your account and ensures that your login requires two pieces of information: something you have (your mobile phone for an authorization code) and something you know (your email/password combination). This helps protect against unauthorized access, should your credentials become compromised.

Mouseflow Launches Integration with 3dcart


3dcart

We are pleased to launch an integration with 3dcart. In this platform, you can create your own e-commerce store without developers.

The integration allows you to add Mouseflow to your store - you'll be able to see what users are (or aren't) doing. Mouseflow tracks activity related to where users are coming from, what pages they view, where they drop off, and if they convert.

In addition, the heatmaps show what content (products, categories, etc.) gets clicked, where users move their mouse, and even where users scroll or spend time on a page. This lets you build reports to optimize your site and boost your conversions.
