What are User Journeys?

User Journeys emulate common paths that your customers take. They behave like
a “synthetic” user, interacting with your website just like a real person does.


Create a simple script of actions that follow a key process, such as:

  • Product filter and search
  • Adding to basket, checkout
  • Log in to an account

… Or any other useful interaction.


Simulate real global users, at 5 minute intervals, following that process.
