We’re excited to announce that Hotjar Recordings now support scrolling both horizontally and vertically on all elements (div, input, span, etc.), SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images, CSS hover effects, and CSS added via InsertRule(). We’re also working on some exciting future improvements that you’ll be hearing about very soon!
If you have sections of your site where visitors can scroll within specific areas of content (not just the main page), you'll now be able to see the user’s scrolling behavior within these areas within Hotjar Recordings.
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images
If you use SVG images on your site, they will now be visible in Hotjar recordings including any changes they make during the visit. This means you can get an even clearer idea of how your visitors interact with your pages.
CSS hover effects
CSS added via InsertRule()
With these large projects completed and new team members joining Hotjar every month, we’re now in a position to dedicate more resources to fixing long-standing issues and improving even further the value Hotjar delivers.
Today’s four updates were heavily requested by Hotjar users – so we thank you for your feedback! Keep it coming :)
More exciting news is on the way soon and happy viewing for now.
