The result of the TrackConsole program is less when the website is built with frames or when its only using 1 url and not using an unique URL for each page. When you are not sure about your website, just sent us a ticket through the service center and we will let you know whether your website is fully supported.

10. There is an error message in the snapshots. What can I do?

This occurs when the snapshot could not be taken. This can happen due to the following reasons:

To remove the failed snapshots, go to the Snapshot Manager in TrackConsole and remove them.


11. Do I need an internet connection for using the TrackConsole software?

Yes, for downloading the captured data from the TrackConsole servers you do need an internet connection. For replaying the visits and displaying the various heat maps you don't need an internet connection unless snapshots need to be made from web pages which were not already captured.


12. Within the replay one of the screenshots is incorrect. What can I do?

When a screenshot of your webpage is incorrect like its to short or not all elements within the page are displayed in a correct manner you need to recapture this page. Recapturing pages can be done within the snapshot manager by doing the following steps:

  • select the url of the page with the incorrect screenshot 
  • select a load delay (box at the right side) of, for example, 6 seconds
  • select "Recapture selected" at the botom
  • Once it's recaptured you can remove the old incorrect version 

Remark: On some vertically centered web pages the snapshots are too short. By selecting the "use fixed height" checkbox this problem will be solved


13. Will TrackConsole download my website for each replay or heat map?

No, TrackConsole will most certainly not download your website! The TrackConsole software will make screenshots of each visited page. This will not effect your website, it's just a regular visit.


14. How can I update my TrackConsole with the latest visit data?

Your TrackConsole will import all the captured data when you start up the program. When TrackConsole is already running you can use the "Download" button to download the latest data.


15. How can I select an area within the heat map to count the clicks?

You can select an area within a heat map simply by selecting this area with your mouse (like dragging). All the clicks within this area will be counted and the total amount will be displayed. 


16. The replay I see seems to have incorrect click positions. What can I do?

When you see visitors click at incorrect objects during a play or heat map this could have the following reasons:

  • visitor thinks an object is clickable which it is not (important to change in your webpage!)
  • With generating the TrackConsole script you have selected the wrong alignment of your website layout. To have this changed you can generate a new script or submit a ticket at our support center so we can resolve this.
  • the clicks you see are clicks made by visitors scrolling in your webpage and while scrolling they click for activating the scroll option (or they click just a little next the scroll bar).

When you have the idea that the clicks are caused by other reasons, please let us know so we can look in to it.


17. How can I save the filters that I want to use more often?

Within the filter manager of teh TrackConsole software you can set various filters. Once you have prepared a filter you can simply save it by select the "save" icon (next to the filter and target tabs). It will be saved locally and when you want to use it you simply open it by using the "open" icon and select the filter you want. You can save various filters, this is unlimited.


18. Why does the capturing of a web page sometimes take a few seconds?

The TrackConsole software workes with screenshots of your webpages. When you select a certain visit to playback or to create a heat map the TrackConsole software will check if there is a screenshot from each visited page available (in the correct resolution). If not, a screenshot will be generated which will take a few seconds. Once the screenshot is available it will be generated anymore unless you choose to use a new version because you changed the webpage. This can be done within the snapshot manager within TrackConsole.


19. How do I get the latest version of the TrackConsole software?

You will get the latest version of the TrackConsole software automaticly during the launching proces of the software. Each time you launch TrackConsole it will checking for updates and instal them if available. You can find the version number of your TrackConsole in the left top after launching.


20. In my dashboard the "reached target" gauge isn't working. What can I do?

If the "reached target" gauge in your dashboard isn't working this can be caused by the following reasons:

  • you have a PLUS account, the "reached target" gauge is only actively available with in the PRO account
  • you didn't set a target within the filter & target section of your TrackConsole
  • you didn't open one of your saved targets within the filter & target section of your TrackConsole
  • your "reached target" gauge is working but the result is 0 (zero) because no target was reached within the selected period
