Creating a Key Transaction – Retrace
You can create Key Transaction for the following types of Resources by navigating to the details of each specific resource instance. These can typically be found on the Performance Tab of an App Dashboard.
Some ideas of Key Transactions to monitor could include:
- Application Home – Arguably the most important page on a site, so keeping tight tabs on its performance is a must.
- User Login – Ensure your users are getting into your application as fast as possible to begin gaining value.
- Shopping Cart Checkout – Speedy checkout completions reduce shopping cart abandonment. Time saved here is literally more money in the bank.
- Site Search – Whether your users are there to find products, home listings, or anything else, keeping tabs of the number of results returned, the query time, and other key metrics will help provide continuous improvement for your users.
