When analyzing user behavior, the more data you collect, the clearer picture you can paint. 

This is why we’re thrilled to announce that with Survicate’s newest native integration, you can better understand the reasons behind your users’ behavior. That’s right - you can now link user feedback collected with Survicate with Smartlook session recordings.

Log in now to give the Smartlook integration a go, or read on to learn more.

Survicate + Smartlook integration

Why we built it

Smartlook is an analytics tool that lets you track user behavior on your website or web app. With their web session recordings, tracked events, and heatmaps, you can understand precisely how visitors interact with your website or product. 

But what if you could add another layer of valuable qualitative data on top of all this? Here's where Survicate comes in. 

Integration with Survicate enables our customers to improve their products via their customers’ voices. When combined with Smartlook’s analytics features, it’s a powerful tool in the world of behavioral analytics.

Integrating these two tools allows you to receive survey responses as custom session events in Smartlook. It means you can use customer feedback collected with Survicate to understand the 'why' behind user behavior in Smartlook.

We’ve partnered with Smartlook to help our joint customers get the most out of insights they collect on their websites and web apps. When we combine both tools, we tie survey responses with web sessions. This creates a powerful solution for discovering how the UX of websites and products can be improved. And we’re thrilled to release it as we keep growing our partner ecosystem - adding new value to our users.

What’s in it for you

The more data you have, the more thorough your analysis can be. Here are some ideas on what you can do with the Smartlook integration:

  • Understand the ‘why’ behind your users’ behavior by asking them for feedback via website or in-product surveys
  • Discover what elements of your website or product people who left negative feedback interacted with before submitting their feedback to determine which areas need improvement
  • Find out if those who left negative feedback encountered issues while interacting with your website or product. If they did, identify what the problems were and fix them
  • Benefit from advanced filtering capabilities to improve audience segmentation and targeting based on customer insights

How it works

Connect the native Smartlook integration with just one click to benefit from an organized digital space for analyzing your users’ feedback and behavior. Before you start, set up web tracking in Smartlook and launch a survey with Survicate. Then:

  1. Go to the Integration tab to connect Survicate with Smartlook
  2. Once your survey starts collecting responses, you’ll receive survey responses as custom session events in Smartlook
  3. Watch session recordings with survey responses to better understand your users' behavior
  4. For even more advanced analysis, filter out answers that are important to you

Follow the Help Center guide to learn how to get the most out of the Smartlook integration.
