  • My session replays are no longer available on my dashboard. Why is this?
    First, you would need to look into your data retention rate. For example, if your plan has a retention rate of 7 days, that means your session replays will be deleted automatically. If your visitor data cannot be found within your retention rate, please contact WatchThemLive Customer Support and we will be happy to assist you.
  • Why am I not receiving new session replays?
    First, you would need to look into your plan’s limits by heading over to your account and checking “Plan”. It is possible that you have reached your plan’s limits and new sessions are not being recorded. If you have not reached your limits and think there is a mistake, please contact WatchThemLive Customer Support to follow up on the issue or to discuss custom upgrades!
  • Why is the number of my session recordings and total sessions different? Don't all sessions get recorded?
    It is impossible to record all user sessions. This is due to two reasons: 1- Insignificant sessions do not get recorded. (e.g. No clicks or scrolls are detected) 2- Certain users leave the website in mere seconds before your website gets fully loaded and our session recorder is triggered.
