Wide variety of filters

You can use a wide variety of filters to focus your research on a particular user segment. This will help you draw the most important findings in a more efficient way. You can easily customize your search to focus on the areas you’re interested in.

Single-page applications

LiveSession is designed for single-page applications. It works with the most popular frameworks, such as Angular, React, Vue and other frequently used technologies. We’re collecting all data, but we also don’t want you to waste your credits on pointless recordings. That’s why bots are excluded and the sessions start only when the user makes an action.

More key advantages...


Engagement score

There is a way to find the most engaging sessions without browsing manually. Engagement score allows you to find recordings with the most activity.

The rating depends on many factors, including the number of pages visited and the number of clicks. Engagement score will help you find the most important sessions automatically.


Inspect mode

While you’re watching a recording, you can select a specific item on your website. This allows you to browse recordings in which the users interact with this element.

Depending on your needs, you can browse sessions according to CSS selectors or text values. This functionality makes it much easier to interpret A/B tests and see how users interact with particular features.


Rage clicks & error clicks

Thanks to rage clicks and error clicks, you can spot pain points and errors on your website automatically.

Rage clicks are detected when the user keeps clicking or tapping repeatedly. It indicates that they were not able to achieve a goal. Automatic error clicks and rage clicks detection makes it much easier for you to find the most urgent issues.

We have tried out many, but LiveSession is the best session replay tool out there.
