These days, many Shell applications collect data from users in one way or another. This can be a simple form that contains some basic information such as name, email, and phone number. Or it can be a more complex form that collects information such as a user's address, credit card information, and more.
Most interactive Shell applications have some form and are commonly the primary way users interact with the application. Therefore, it is essential to track when a user submits a form in your Shell application and monitor whether the form submission is successful or whether the user has encountered an error and has not been able to submit the form.
In many cases, a minor problem in the form submission can cause a user to abandon the form and not complete the form submission. This can be a significant problem for your application as it can cause a considerable loss of revenue and user experience.
Fortunately, here at LogSnag, we have created a powerful solution for this problem. LogSnag is a powerful, real-time event tracking tool that works seamlessly with any Shell application. With LogSnag, you can set up event tracking for anything you want and track when a user submits a form in your Shell application in real time. You may also set up optional rules to notify you and your team when a user has encountered an error and has not been able to submit the form.
In addition, LogSnag allows you to track user journeys and create a timeline of events for each user. This way, you can always track the activity of a specific user, such as when they have submitted a form and any other activity they have done in your application.
