Installing the Mouseflow tracking code to your website basically only requires 2 simple steps:

  1. Copy the Tracking Code from your Mouseflow Account
  2. Paste the Tracking Code into your site template, just before the closing of the body tag (</body>) and Save.



Don't worry, we're going to go into more detailed steps in the guide below.



Step 1: Log in to Mouseflow


Begin by logging into Mouseflow and clicking the </> symbol to open up the Tracking Code you will need.

Click the Copy to Clipboard button to save the Tracking Code.



Step 2: Go to the relevant HTML template for your website


Now go to your website and open up the HTML template containing the <body> code, and paste your Tracking Code in just before the closing body tag </body>.



Remember to save.


Step 3: Test Installation and Activate Tracking

 

Once you have completed adding the Mouseflow Tracking Code to your site you should refresh one of the pages that the code is on, this will let Mouseflow know that the installation has been made.


To begin recording traffic on your site, you need to activate tracking by clicking the Activate Tracking button from the 

Manage My Sites page.
You confirm that you will abide by Mouseflow terms and not collect Personal Identifiable Information (PII) by signing your name and clicking the button.



Tip: If you are not seeing the Activate Recording button (or popup) at this point, please try to visit your site in your browser's Private or Incognito mode, and do some clicking, scrolling and navigating while you're there.


Once you have activated tracking, Mouseflow will automatically begin recording your visitors. You can check the Recording Status from the Manage My Sites page or you can click the play button to go to your Dashboard.
