What can you check with analytics?

Inline Manual Analytics provides reports on the Player, Widget, Walkthroughs, and Launchers. Currently there are no reports for Article or Redirect Topics. 

Each report will show the count and increment/decrements percentage. The percentage is counted by comparing the data with the previous period. For example, if you select 1st October to 14th October, it will compare it against 17th September - 30st September - the last 14 days from 1st October. If you select two months, it will compare it with the previous two months.

Here’s a list of available reports:

Player initialized - the number of times Inline Manual Player is initialized within your application. When the Player is already installed on your website, it is initialized every time a user visits or logs into your website.

Walkthroughs launched - the total number of times your guides are launched/played in your application.

Walkthroughs completed - the number of times your user finishes or completes the whole guide.

Widget clicked - the number of times the widget button is activated by your users.

Launchers clicked - if you have added launcher icons in your application, this will show the number of times they were clicked.

Top walkthroughs played - These are the top walkthroughs that are launched automatically or manually by your users. It will display the name of the topic, its rank, the number of plays vs the number of times your users complete it.

Widget clicks per path - this will show the number of times the widget button is activated by your users per path or page on your website. If you rename the widget to “Need help?” this might indicate on what pages the users are lost.

Top not completed walkthroughs - A walkthrough is marked as not completed if the user closes or exits the tour before reaching the last step or step indicated as last step via End step feature.

Walkthroughs launched vs completed - this is a comparison of the total number of times a walkthrough is activated or launched, vs the number of times the user has completed it. A walkthrough is marked complete if the user reaches the last step or step indicated as last step via End step feature.

Each topic has its own analytics results. For example, with multi-step walkthroughs, you can view the drop off funnels showing how many steps were completed by users.

To see the drop off funnels report:

  1. Click the topic you want to check.

  1. You will be redirected to a page with the drop off funnels report.

In the drop off funnel report, you can see how many people have seen the first step and how many of them continued to the second one. Use the calendar and compare the previous performance. With this knowledge, you can optimize the walkthroughs to deliver the best experience and increase your conversion rates.
