If you’ve been trying (and failing 😬) to create a streamlined process for saving, organizing, and sharing user behavior insights then this is for you!
For you to make user-led improvements, finding insights isn’t enough. You need to sort and analyze those insights, form your hypothesis, validate it, and get your team onboard so you can confidently prioritize the most impactful product improvements. Until now, you had to use tools like Google Sheets, Docs, or Slack to organize your insights and share them with your team. But the latest addition to Hotjar is shaking things up!
We’re excited to introduce Highlights 🥳.
Highlights allows you to cut out snippets of your recordings and heatmaps and save them into collections that you can share and analyze with your team. With all of your meaningful insights organized in one place, you can easily discover opportunities, validate assumptions, and get buy-in from your team.
Highlights is now available to all users on our Plus, Business, and Scale plans. Users on our Basic plan will get access to Highlights from the week of November 8.
With Highlights you can:
Highlights enables you to sort and act on insights more effectively as a team, bringing higher confidence to product decisions, so you can prioritize and implement the most impactful changes. And with your most relevant insights grouped in one place, it makes spotting behavioral patterns and validating assumptions a whole lot easier. It’s a win-win 🙌
Here's how John, a Sales Ops manager at ClassHero gets buy-in using Highlights:
Highlights is the tool I needed in order to convey what I'm seeing to busy executives and technical leads from whom I need buy in. Here's a 30 second Highlight of the issue. Here's a Collection of the same issue across multiple users to view at your leisure. These drive near immediate understanding and clarity around what I'm asking for and why. The Collections view basically creates a visual report of all the evidence I have for a given case. Here's how much this hurts (one Highlight); click on the rest of these if you can stomach it (a Collection of Highlights). — John Gilmore, Sales Ops Manager at ClassHero
📢 Favoriting and manually tagging in Recordings will be replaced by Highlights from November 8
❗ If you’d like to keep a note of the recordings you've favorited or manually tagged up to now, you’ll need to export your recordings data before November 8.
💁♀️ Check out our Highlights help doc for step-by-step guides and tutorial videos on how to create, share, and manage Highlights, as well as how to use Highlights instead of favorites and manual tags, and how to export your existing data.
