  5. Search for the page based on URL or page title and then choose the page by clicking on it.
    Note: If multiple URLs are shown for the page, select the URL with the most page views. To find out more about duplicate pages, see – Why do duplicate pages show up in Analytics? Also, if you do not see the page, make sure the URL is valid and has the Analytics code, see - How do I know that the Analytics JavaScript is on all of my pages?
    Make sure that the page entered does not redirect to another page. If it does, you should instead enter the URL that visitors are redirected to in order to gather behavior map interactions.

  6. Finish by clicking on the green Add page button.

When the page has been successfully added a green boxed message will be displayed at the top of the page.

Page added confirmation

You can view pages added to Behavior Map by selecting Behavior Map from the sub-menu. By clicking on the specific page on the list, you will be able to view the Behavior Map for that page once a screenshot has been generated.

Note: Users restricted to Group Access Only will not be able to add pages to Behavior Map.

Once you have added your first page(s), the Siteimprove system will make a screenshot of the page and start collecting Behavior Map data. It may take up to 24 hours before the screenshot is made and data is only collected from the moment you add a page, so give it some time before you expect the results to be displayed on your page. In the event that no visitors enter your page, no data can be collected and therefore no screenshot will be made.
