  2. Click User Action.

  3. Select the desired element on the page that you want to track.

  4. Enter a name for the selected action.


Use a name that easily identifies the element you are working with, on the Whatfix Dashboard.

  1. Under Choose from the existing tags, click the Plus icon and type the name of the tag to select from the list.

For accounts that do not have Smart Context enabled, applying the Display Rule is mandatory.

The rule applied must be URL based (like hostname, path, parameter, or hash) to make sure User Actions that load on the application are specific to the particular page.

  1. Click Add Action.

  2. Click +Action to create more User Actions and then repeat steps 3 to 6.

  3. Once the User Actions are created, click Maximize.

  4. Click Save.

  • Each User Action is added as an individual action and can be accessed on the Whatfix Dashboard.

  • On the User Actions page, use the Filter option to list User Actions based on users, tags or action type.

  • User Actions do not have any visual characteristics and cannot be previewed using the Preview Mode.
  • User Action is available for JS embed, Extension and Export model deployment customers.
