Can Fullstory capture data when a user zooms in or out on a touch device?

Yes! When a user zooms in or out on a touch device, it may indicate that your content isn't rendering at an appropriate size. With Fullstory, you can identify sessions where users are zooming in or out using finger gestures on touch devices. This includes mobile phones, tablets, and laptops with multi-touch trackpads. 

To identify these sessions, build a search using the "Pinch-to-zoom" event filter.

To get more specific, add dependent criteria to find sessions where the gesture is "Zoom In" or "Zoom Out."

You can also track pinch-to-zoom trends using metrics and dashboards. For example, this Dimensionality Card shows us the top pages where users are zooming in or out using touch gestures.
