The View Paths report, which is based on path analysis, displays a pathing chart that represents the paths that were taken between states in the app.
The View Paths and View Action reports are similar because both are pathing reports. The View Paths report allows you to see how users navigate in your app from one screen to the next. The View Actions report displays the sequence of actions (events, such as clicks, selections, resizing, and so on) that users perform in your app. You can use a funnel report to combine navigation and actions in one report. For more information, see Funnel.
Each node, shaped like a box, represents a state in the users’ paths though an app. For example, in the illustration above, the top node represents the number of users that launched the app and navigated to the main view.
When you click a node to provide the additional options to modify the chart, additional options such as Focus or Expand appear. For example, when you click the MainView state in the top node, the Focus and Expand icons appear.
To expand the view, click the + icon to display the additional paths that come in to or go from the node. In the illustration below, state 1 is launching the app, state 2 is viewing the main page of the app, and state 3 includes the following paths that users took:
Click to isolate the node and to show the paths that are coming into and going out of the selected node. In the illustration below, the following paths preceded users who were viewing the main view of the app:
You can focus or expand multiple nodes for a detailed view of the paths that users take in your app. For example:
You can configure the following options for this report:
