UNDERSTANDING SEGMENTATION IN HEATMAPS:
Segmentation provides you an option to filter the data from the captured visitors. It supports multiple input options at once to filter data based on your requirement. You can filter visitors data based on the following inputs.
Segmenting based on Traffic:
Helps to segment the reports of the visitors who directly landed on the test page URL
You can filter the data collected based on the medium such as Paid, Organic, Email, Social, Direct visitors.
|You can filter the data based on campaigns and by their UTM parameters|
Landing page URL
Segments the data based on the visitors who land first on a specific URL
Filtering can be done from the page where the user has been referred.
For example, a visitor might land on your test page via Facebook, Google, and so on
Segmenting based on Technology:
From which OS the data is collected eg: Windows, Mac, Linux
From which browser the data is collected eg: Chrome, Firefox, Safari
Filtering based on the type of device used by the visitor while accessing the site eg: Mobile, Desktop & Tablet

Segmenting based on Custom Attributes:
You can segment and view the test results with the custom attributes created earlier in project settings
