3. That's it! You should now see the enabled status next to the Crazy Egg destination.


Seeing Freshpaint Events in Crazy Egg

Once the Crazy Egg integration is enabled, you can now set it as an event destination:โ€‹

Crazy Egg only records data about mouse clicks and scrolls. This means it does not collect any of the data represented by other standard Freshpaint API methods.


If youโ€™re not familiar with the Freshpaint Web SDK, you can read more here about what the page method does. A sample call looks like this:

As this method is automatically included in your Freshpaint snippet by default, you donโ€™t need to take any further action. If you remove this default page call from your snippet for whatever reason, Crazy Egg will not be able to record heatmaps.

You can see your pageviews as heat and scroll map snapshots and recordings up to a few minutes after the pageview event. There is a longer delay before the pageview shows up in the bottom left hand corner as % of pageviews used for your account.
