On your heatmap list, you will notice a column marked 'Friction'. This column reveals the average friction score for each page you've recorded.

The average friction score is generated by averaging the values of all the friction events received on that specific page. This can quickly show you the pages where your visitors are struggling the most, thus which pages may need your immediate attention.

Mouseflow will also highlight pages based on the friction score with a red or yellow color coding.

  • Red highlighted friction scores are significantly above the average friction score.

  • Yellow highlighted friction scores are slightly above the average friction score.
