What is Page Version?

This article was wrote when: Ver 2.0.2.

QA Heatmap Analytics saves the HTML of a page and builds the heatmap based on it.

For example, suppose you update a part of an article, such as a text or an image.
This will change the content of the same URL.
This means that “the version of the page has changed.”

In “Heat Map Manager”, you can switch the page version.
When you update the contents of a page, press the “Switch Version” icon on the corresponding page line. The new HTML will be saved and the data will be recorded. (It takes about a day for the data of the new version to be reflected.)

Page versions are also useful when you want to use heatmaps to change the content of an article and see how it is read before and after the update.

* Please note
QA Heatmap Analytics does not store anything other than HTML. (Examples of non-HTML: CSS, JS, images, etc.)
This is because it is very difficult to deal with the complexity of the file structure, which varies from site to site. In terms of data size, it is also judged that it is proper not be saved.
Therefore, when we build heatmaps for past page versions, we refer to existing files (CSS, images, etc.) from code written in past HTML.
Therefore, when there is no longer anything to refer to, it will affect the heatmap construction.
For a more accurate heatmap of past page versions, when you change CSS, etc., it is recommended that you keep the past version by adding new classes or so.
