User Journeys is a useful feature within the Siteimprove Analytics module to measure visitor navigation behavior on your website. User Journeys show the different paths that visitors take between a start page (A) and an end page (B). User Journeys can help you understand how your visitors are reaching their intended destinations on your site. 

This article is intended to show you how to add a User Journey to start collecting data and create better experiences for your visitors.

Note: It can take a few minutes for a journey to be processed. If a user only has group access to a site, then details about pages outside of that group will be restricted. Routes are calculated up to 8 steps at most (i.e. start page -> 6 page steps  -> end page).
