In this tutorial we will walk you through how user experience monitoring works and how you can keep an eye on your most important pages.
You can find your user experience scores in the dashboard by expanding the UX widget.
Hexometer works like your own dedicated QA testing team that continuously checks your pages to catch spelling, grammar, mobile and device specific, display issues before they affect your potential customers.
We define your user experience score based on three core areas: Spelling and grammar, mobile friendliness, as well as how well your website design adapts when viewed on different devices. These are typically areas that normally take days if not weeks or months to get picked up and fixed when checking pages manually.
If you have a standard or above plan, Hexometer performs in-depth checks on your homepage daily and our smart crawler setting automatically identifies important pages to spot check throughout the month based on traffic and recency.
You can access user experience reports by clicking on the user experience section in the navigation, and then accessing the dedicated spelling & grammar, mobile friendly or devices check sections.
For even more comprehensive peace of mind, you can also perform on-demand checks and schedule these to run daily, weekly or monthly based on your account settings.

For example, to perform an on-demand spelling and grammar check, go to the spelling and grammar sub section and click add page.
Hexometer will now perform an in-depth analysis and check this page using the schedule you set in your account settings. You can pause scheduled checks at any time.
Once Hexometer has run an in-depth check on a page, you can access saved reports by clicking on the page URL. Here you will find the last check as well as all the historical checks performed on that specific page.
