A couple comments

A couple of comments about the recording script:

  • It's super small, asynchronous, and designed to be unnoticeable to any user of your technology. You can read more about the negligible performance impact of FullStory in this article.
  • No need to instrument any elements in your application or site  once the FullStory script loads, it records all in-browser interactions and mutations, so don't fret about how to record that pesky "submit" button  if it's in the page, we see it, record it, and make it available to search.

Invite a team member

Invite a teammate, such as a web developer or site administrator, to join your FullStory account and help you get setup.
