Emoji and Feedback

Most of the Feedback that you receive is related to the whole service or product, and thus it is a challenge to understand the performance of a single feature.

You can use its information to discover whether the anticipated excitement level was true and whether people actually like the feature or not. It takes users less than 5 seconds to click on emoji or send your comments. We help companies to ruin the barrier between them and their users. All data from Feedback is later summarized in a dashboard.

It is a feature that allows you to talk to a target audience and send targeted messages. Whether you want to send a welcome discount or treat loyalist differently – segmentation makes it possible.

User Tracking

Track your users' activities and know when a specific person left feedback, emoji reaction or subscribed to the newsletter. Moreover, all users' actions are going to be summarized in "Activities" dashboard and present your general happiness, unhappiness or neutral as well as comments indicators.

For example, if a person showed you that she wasn't excited about a feature and left negative feedback, you can identify who the person is, and use the information to address the issue personally.
