What is minimum time on page?

LiveSession gives you an option to choose the minimum length of the recorded sessions. In short, you can cut off all sessions that are shorter than the time you set in your website’s settings.

How does it work?

For example, if you choose not to capture sessions shorter than 20 seconds, we won’t save them. That means you won’t see them on the sessions list. By default, recording starts right after the user visits the page. If he leaves it (i.e., by going from your home page to the pricing page) in less than 20 seconds or doesn’t spend the required amount of time on any page, no session will be saved.

Although by default, we start recording immediately after your user visits your website, sessions that don’t meet the minimum time on page criterium won’t lower your monthly sessions quota.

How to set up the minimum time on page?

To start recording only sessions that meet the minimum time on page, do the following:

  1. Go to Settings → Websites. Find a website you would like to apply the minimum time on page to and click on “edit” on the right side:

  1. In Settings, choose the “Minimum time on page” option and set the minimum session length you’d like to track:

  1. Click on the “Save changes” button.
