What is Hotjar?

Hotjar is a powerful suite of tools providing Analytics and Feedback capabilities that enable teams to understand the behavior of their users.

In zeroheight you can use Hotjar to learn more about how people are viewing your design system documentation, as well as gather feedback in context.


Hotjar allows you to view recordings of viewer behavior on your styleguide. You can watch how viewers navigate the documentation.

Hotjar should start tracking recordings automatically so there is no need to do anything. You can read more about setting up recordings in the Hotjar Documentation.
