First Click Testing is an activity type that helps you understand where users click first on an image.

By analyzing these initial clicks, you can see if your design is intuitive and easy to navigate. 

First Click Testing works on both mobile and desktop platforms and is available in all Userlytics subscription plans. It supports both unmoderated and moderated testing approaches. 

To use it, upload an image or screenshot of your website, app, or prototype. You’ll receive a heatmap and click map showing where users clicked on specific areas.

To get started, go to the “Activities” tab in the Userlytics study builder. In the left menu, select “First Click.” Then, click on the activity you just created and fill in the details, such as the question for participants and the screenshot or image you want them to see.

the First Click Testing button is on the left hand side of the Activities tab in the Userlytics dashboard.

You can make questions mandatory, requiring participants to answer before proceeding. You can also disable screen recording if sensitive information needs to be shared during that step of the UX research study.

To add more activities, click the “Add Activity/Question” button. For more guidance on using Activities in your study builder, consult this resource, or this comprehensive guide.

First Click metrics and analysis

After setting up your First Click activity test, you can view the results on your study Metrics dashboard, which will display them as a heatmap.

Hovering over the heatzones with your mouse will provide a detailed breakdown of the number of participants who clicked in that specific location.
