New updates and improvements to Usermaven

  1. This week, we have shipped plenty of improvements and new features under the Web Analytics module. Let's get started.

    🆕 Show/Hide domains from web analytics

    Usermaven automatically collects data from the domains where you have installed tracking pixel, so if you have it installed on staging environments, you can exclude those domains from the Web Analytics section.

    To show or hide any domain under Web Analytics, navigate to the Workspace Settings > Miscellaneous section. Turn off the domains that you do not wish to see under Web Analytics. That's it. Now, you will see only those domains which are enabled for your workspace.

    Note: The data will still be collected from your domains, it is only hidden from web analytics. In case you want to see the statistics later on for a certain domain, it is possible.

    🆕 Advance date picker under Web Analytics

    Web Analytics date picker got an upgrade and now includes new time intervals such as Last Quarter, Last 6 Months, and more. Within the next few days, you will be able to set the interval for the graphs such as "Day", "Week", "Month" and "Year".

    🆕 View day statistics by clicking on the bar chart

    If you'd like to see the specific day statistics, you can hover over the day, and click on it to see the statistics for that particular day.

    🆕 Detailed view for Web Analytics

    We have removed the infinite scroll from Top Sources, Top Pages, etc, as it was breaking the user experience, and added a detailed view option. You can view the detailed statistics by clicking on the "Detailed View" link.

    Other improvements:

    • We have added a sorting order under the "All Workspaces" page. Sort your workspaces by name in ascending or descending order.
    • The sorting option is also added under the Funnel Analysis section in Web Analytics. Now, you can sort your funnels by name ascending/descending, recent/oldest.
    • We have built a design system at Usermaven, the overall branding is going to be much more consistent and this will help us in shipping features at a much faster pace.
    • Fixed single quote escaping for Pinned events.
    • Fixed scroller for the conversion goals.
    • The Web Analytics website dropdown is now searchable. You can search for a domain using it.
    • And several other in-app improvements.

    We hope you enjoy these updates and we will be coming back again by next week with more new features and improvements.

  2. Today, we have released another most awaited feature called "Pinned Events".

    Usermaven's auto-capture technology automatically tracks all of your website's actions such as button clicks, form submits, link clicks, etc.

    Pinned Events

    With the help of Pinned event, now you can group auto-captured events into pinned events and use them in your conversion goals, funnel analysis, or product insights.

    image

    As an example, let’s say you have several “signup” buttons across your site and you may create new pages for your website with "signup" buttons, you can group all your pages with the "signup" button into a Pinned event.

    Pinned Events in Web Analytics

    You can also view the statistics against Pinned events under the Web-Analytics events section.

    image

    New Auto-Captured View

    Previously, the auto-captured view was showing the timeline of the events. Now, you will see the aggregated results of auto-captured events.

    Soon, we will be adding an option to create a pinned event directly from the auto-captured page.

    Exclude Bot Traffic

    You can exclude bot traffic from your analytics by turning the option on for exclusion of bot traffic. To exclude bot traffic, head over to the Workspace Settings > Miscellaneous and turn on the option.

    Apart from the above new features, we have fixed and improved the following features:

    • Fixed email address maximum characters limit.
    • Style improvements for the web analytics funnel analysis, it is now more readable.
    • Workspaces dropdown height increased in the dashboard. Previously it was showing a maximum 3 workspaces.
    • Workspace name check added, the workspace name has to be unique in an organization.
    • And plenty of other improvements done since the last release.

  3. This week, we are introducing a brand new feature "Shareable Dashboards".  The shareable dashboard will allow you to share your web analytics dashboard with your team, clients, or other stakeholders without requiring them to log in. 

    We believe that this will be extremely beneficial for agencies and businesses that work with external marketing teams.

    The shareable dashboard also comes with "Password Protection" for extra security. If this option is enabled, people with that shared link can only view the dashboard if they input the password you have set for your dashboard.

    A session is a group of user interactions with your website that occur within a specific time frame. A single session, for example, can contain multiple page views, events, social interactions, and eCommerce transactions.

    Visit duration is the amount of time the user spent on your website during each session.

    Bounce rate is the percentage of visitors who navigates away from a website after viewing a single page. If your bounce rate is higher, then you may need to put some extra effort into your website messaging or drive a targeted audience to your website.

    - We have worked on optimizing the speed of the Dashboard, and you will notice the difference.

    - If you are using a bar chart or line chart, your last used chart preference will be saved. The next time you visit the dashboard, It will show accordingly.

    Announcement
    Improvement
    helping-keep-data-private

    Usermaven tracking script is now hosted on GDPR-compliant CDN bunny.net. Bunny.net is EU based CDN provider and building a privacy-first internet. Also, Usermaven's web application fonts are powered by Bunny.net and we no longer have any tracking script that is using Google services.

    By default, bunny.net anonymizes IPs by removing the last octet from the address. For example, the IP 158.136.18.23 would be transformed to 158.136.18.0 prior to being stored in their logging system. 

    Bunny.net has 102 Edge locations and NVME-SSD-powered servers, delivering the best possible experience to your users.

  7. Last week, we shipped the Pixel White-labelling feature, and this week, we are back with the release of two new features in Web Analytics.

    🆕 Conversion Funnels

    Conversion funnels help you to visualize and understand the flow through which a potential customer lands on your site and then takes a desired action. For example, how many visitors visited the offer page and purchased your product?

    image

    🆕 Conversion Goals

    A conversion goal is an objective you set based on an action you want your website visitors to take. For example, Visitors who bought your product or visitors who signed up for your application.

    image

    To get started with Conversion Funnels and Goals, navigate to your Web Analytics Dashboard, and you will see the option to create Conversion Funnels and Goals.

    Conversion Funnels and Goals works cross-domain as well. For example, if your website is ACME.com and orders are placed at checkout.acme.com, you can use cross-domain URLs while setting up funnels.

    ⚙️ Other Improvements

    - We added a navigation link in the "Top Sources" and "Top Pages" sections in web analytics. Now, you can visit the source by clicking on the link icon to find which website is bringing most of the traffic to your website, or you can view the pages your visitors with most of the traffic and optimize them further. 

    - Visitors, Events, and Page-views graph now work according to your Workspace timezone.

    - User experience improved for Workspace and Account settings. Previously, you had to click on the profile icon, and then you could go to the Account settings.

    - Web analytics statistics were not loading properly because Ad-blockers blocked our API calls. We've fixed it in this release.

    We have excited new features under-development, till then stay tuned.
