URL rules allow you to customize how the SimpleHeatmaps platform routes data to heatmaps.
Some websites have pages that are identical, but have different URLs because of user data or other parameters. Since SimpleHeatmaps, by default, treats unique URLs as unique pages, this can cause data from one heatmap to appear as multiple heatmaps. URL Rules can resolve this issue by correctly routing data for your specific application.
To create a rule select one or more heatmaps in the Heatmaps Table View that you want to merge and select "Merge" in the options toolbar.
There are four different Rule Types that can be used to match URLs and route data. Three are simple cases and one provides full capability to write any rule matching algorithm you may need.
Regular expressions provide a complex language to write any matching algorthm needed. Here are some useful resources to learn more about regular expressions:
