Capture feedback when it matters
Custom triggers for every feedback scenario.
Timing is everything. That’s especially true when it comes to user feedback.
Catch a user who’s engaged or one who’s about to leave. Ask for feedback everywhere or on just some pages. Choose your audience and level of persistence. Because improving a product and a customer experience goes hand in hand.
Delight users with what they really want
Create a digital experience that makes everyone’s life easier.
Do you know what keeps your buyer’s from making that final crucial conversion-click? Well, have you asked them?
Turn users’ questions and frustrations into helpful content and journey touchpoints.
Instant customer feedback notifications
Never miss a response again.
Get alerted via Slack, email, or other integrations whenever a user submits a new response.
Personalize notifications to alert you only when you want it, like when a certain selection is made.
Feedback options that fit all needs
Choose from free text, NPS, and multiple choice.
Gather feedback on your terms to help your teams drive decisions with confidence.
Low-effort, high impact response options empower user engagement. Longform selections capture in-depth feedback (that you’d prefer to get directly than find in a review!).
Questions you can answer with our user feedback tool
Ask your visitors directly for their reasons to exit your page and use that information to improve your offer.
Trigger a feedback campaign after they spend more than 10 seconds on your page, or after they scroll 60% of your page to get insights on how to make your content better.
Go further than search intent and find out what are the drivers getting you vibility behind the scenes.
Click-errors, rage-clicks and failed-submits are conversion killers. Use them as trigger to recover conversions as they experience frustration.

A user feedback tool is a method for communicating with users, passively or actively, to collect opinions, experiences, and perspectives on your company, website, products, and more.
Customer feedback can be many things in many places, on your site or out of your control.
A user feedback tool lets you get in front of users and offer an outlet for their thoughts — instead of letting them wander to third-party review sites, social media, support centers, or other more public and direct places.
By popping up for users (based on your custom triggers) at key moments in their website experience — say, when they scroll far enough or read long enough — a user feedback tool encourages engagement and communication between your customers and you.
You can ask about general satisfaction or query a specific situation. This can give you real, invaluable insight to create content, improve your website design, adjust your sales process, and more.
Much like a session recording captures a user’s mouse movements, clicks, and scrolls to provide from-the-source behavior data, a user feedback tool taps into the minds of customers to capture their thoughts down in words or selections.
Capturing customer input via a user feedback tool can lead to significant revenue and CX improvements. Here’s just a few examples:
- Identify conversion-assisting content opportunities
- Collect specific responses when a bug occurs
- Rate satisfaction to identify problem pages
- Learn what features users want most
- Uncover navigation confusion
By acting on the feedback provided by users, you can confidently optimize and create in ways that drive immediate value to your customers — and your business — that go well beyond website optimization.
User feedback is also an invaluable resource when you’re attempting conversion rate optimization with low traffic.
That depends on your goals. Some example questions follow — these can collect free text responses or multiple choices. These can also be combined with a Net Promoter Score (as numbers of smileys ).

When crafting questions, remember to be authentic and concise. Thoughtful questions geared at helping customers will elicit thoughtful responses in turn!
User feedback’s importance to your website is clear and direct — yet it also has larger implications if applied to larger business, marketing, and operational strategies. Offering user feedback opportunities throughout the customer journey gives essential insight on the effectiveness of your touchpoints.
Are you serving the right content? At the right time? Are your ads, emails, and other outreach bringing in the right audience? Can your sales team close more quickly by getting ahead of prospects’ questions?
Customer-focused companies need a reliable pulse on user experience beyond web analytics and user behavior data. User feedback makes it easy to allow users to give input on their experience.
With real users giving input, confidence increases when making optimizations to website design or content, allowing for more efficient and impactful improvements.
User feedback can happen in a variety of environments, from in-app chats to third-party reviews to in-person communication. Feedback can be reactive or proactive; it can come from product, marketing, UX, CRO, analyst, leadership, ecommerce, brand, and SEO teams with distinct purpose and benefits.
Mouseflow’s Feedback tool serves these applications with 5 handy question options:

- Social media
- Third-party review sites
- Customer interviews
- Website user feedback tools
Setting up Mouseflow’s Feedback tool is extremely simple.
- Name your Feedback campaign
- Choose your questions
- Select appearance, trigger, and notification settings
- Activate your campaign!
Your feedback campaign’s submissions are then organized in the Mouseflow app along with the user’s session recording.
Common trigger events for feedback pop-ups available in Mouseflow’s Feedback tool include:
- Exit intent (mouse leaves)
- Page load
- Time delay
- Scroll depth
- Click rage
- Click error
It can also be triggered manually, by inserting code on your website (learn how!).
You’ll then choose to show the feedback campaign once per user or once per session.
After specifying which pages will launch the feedback campaign, you can also segment the trigger to certain audiences by language, device type (mobile, tablet, desktop), and visitor type (first or returning).
When and how to trigger depends on the purpose behind the feedback campaign. Usability questions should give the user enough time to use and experience the page. Customer journey questions might trigger when a user goes to leave or experiences click error.
You’re probably using Google Analytics or Adobe Analytics to collect mountains of traffic data. Mouseflow complements these tools with user behavior data, giving you a richer and more contextual understanding of your customers and their journeys through your site.
A user feedback tool provides a human-touch form of measurement and outreach that adds qualitative, emotional, real-world depth to analytics data. It also offers a new channel for optimization inspiration, which can then be vetted and prioritized by jumping back into Mouseflow additional features and other analytics tools.
