Frustrated Sessions

Who can use this feature?
- Available with Enterprise, Advanced, Business, and Free plans. 
- Available for admin, architect, and standard users.

Beneath every search and segment, you'll find a Frustrated Sessions Card that surfaces frustrated sessions. The card shows up to 10 sessions that match your search criteria ordered by the count of frustrating events. 


How do you define frustration?

Fullstory uses a combination of our proprietary heuristics, such as rage, dead and error clicks or high rates of abandoned forms to find "frustration events" and then shows you the sessions that had the highest numbers of frustration events.

To eliminate false positives, Fullstory ensures there is a high enough threshold of combined events before counting them as frustration. In other words, it won't just show you the same results from a "has rage clicks" search. Fullstory will find places where users had rage clicks that also resulted in JS errors, etc. 

What if I have false positives in my frustrated sessions? 

We are constantly tweaking our algorithm to improve results and remove false positives. Even so, there may be an abandoned form on your site that continues to show as frustration. You can use fs-ignore-formabandon to ignore these forms
