Can I embed Usersnap in our mobile native app (Android/iOS)?

Do I need one project per page?

No, you can create a project and use it on as many pages as you want. Only the page view limits of 1 million page views per month might apply.

You can also use the Usersnap project across domains and you are not bound to only 1 domain per project.

Can I whitelabel the dashboard?

What is the maximum supported screen resolution of Usersnap?

The Usersnap widgets support screen resolutions up to 4K high definition, which results in 3840x2160 pixels for Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

If the screen size exceeds the corresponding maximum screen resolution, your image will be cropped. If you need larger screens for your web project, please contact us, we are happy to find a custom solution for you.

Does Usersnap support WebGL?

Yes, but we need your help to make your WebGL application using the element compatible with Usersnap. Please enable the option 'preserveDrawingBuffer' where you create your canvas context:

gl = canvas.getContext("experimental-webgl", {preserveDrawingBuffer: true});

Does Usersnap support iframes in feedback screenshots?

Yes, our widget supports displaying an embedded page, loaded in an iframe, as long as both web pages have the same origin.

Due to browser limitations, we won’t display content that loads from a different origin. A placeholder ‘Cross-Origin content’ will be displayed instead.

Our browser extensions (Chrome, Firefox) however do not have this restriction.

📘

Exception:

This limitation can be bypassed by using the native screenshot feature.

What browsers are supported by Usersnap?

The Usersnap Widget is supported in the following browsers:

BrowserBrowser Version

Can confidential parts of screenshots be hidden?

You can count on us! Privacy is important. We implemented a PII feature for you.

You can define elements that are automatically hidden on every screenshot (payment details etc).

Additionally, you can activate the hide-feature for your users so that they can hide information for your team.

More importantly, the contents of that container will not even be transmitted to our rendering engine.

To always hide elements in your web application or website, let your developers apply this CSS class "usprivacy".

<ul class="usprivacy">
    <li>This is a super private content.</li>
</ul>

Can I install Usersnap on-premise?

Yes and No. You can install the Usersnap feedback widget on our on-premise software but read this guide about Protected Sites.

If you want to install the Usersnap app and dashboard on your own servers, we are really sorry. Our Usersnap feedback platform is cloud-based and only works on our highly-secured servers.

Is Usersnap WCAG compliant?

Yes, we comply with the latest Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.1, at level AA for two of the most liked project types: Quick Issue Reporting and NPS (Net Promoter Score).

We are committed to improving our SaaS product to be more perceivable and operable to a wider range of people with disabilities.

To integrate it successfully into your product, we propose 2 possible implementations:

  1. Install the Usersnap code snippet on your application and set display rules to trigger by API log event.

  2. Link to the full-page feedback form. In the project dashboard, find the “Share” button to get the link to a full-page feedback form. Copy the link and use it on your websites, emails and/or applications.

Please note the Quick Issue Reporting widget upon spawning will announce to screen readers, using aria-live, that pressing the Enter key takes a screenshot.

Can my users access the submitted feedback items?

Yes, absolutely!
You can share access to the Board with your guest users. They will then be able to follow up and/or interact with different submitted items.

Is Usersnap GDPR compliant?

Yes, Usersnap is 100% GDPR compliant. Find more on our website.

Can Usersnap provide Enterprise security?

We are working hard to make Usersnap rock-solid to protect your user and customer data. Please, read everything we've implemented to give you the highest security possible.

What do page views mean?

Any load of the global- or project snippet on your website counts as a page view, no matter if a button or widget is actually displayed.

Is it possible to move feedback items between projects?

Currently, it's not possible to move feedback items between different projects. If you have a need for it, please reach out to our team and tell us more about it.

How to show the Usersnap widget with short keys?

You want to hide the feedback button but open the Usersnap widget with a few short keys when you click on your keyboard? No problem. We set up an example for you on how to do that.

<html>
<body>

  <h1>Usersnap demo</h1>
    <script>
        window.onUsersnapCXLoad = function(api) {
            
            api.init();
            api.hide('[project-specific API key from your account]'); // project-specific API-key (NOT global API key)
            // better to hide it via the configuration in the Usersnap dashboard (audience nobody)
          window.Usersnap = api;
        }
        var script = document.createElement('script');
        script.defer = 1;
        script.src = 'https://widget.usersnap.com/global/load/[global API key from your account]?onload=onUsersnapCXLoad'; // global API key from the installation dialog
        document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(script);
        
        document.onkeyup = function(e) {
        if (e.ctrlKey && e.which == 85) {
            alert("Ctrl + U shortcut combination was pressed");
            window.Usersnap.show('[project-specific API key from your account]').then((widgetApi) => widgetApi.open()); // project-specific API-key (NOT global API key)
        }
        };
      </script>

</body>
</html>

Does Usersnap only send the screenshot's image over to its server?

Usersnap does send the whole HTML DOM to our renderers where we take a screenshot. Unless the native browser API or the browser extension is in use.
