You can send attributes about your users to Hotjar and use these to target Polls based on predefined conditions. For example, you could tell Hotjar exactly when somebody signed up for your service, what industry they work in, or what their total customer lifetime value is.
This allows you to target a specific set of users to your site, such as “target this Poll to paying customers only”, offering more relevant answers to the questions you have about your visitors.
If you haven't yet setup User Attributes for a site now, check out our 4 step guide to setting up User Attributes.
User Attributes values do not appear in Poll or Incoming Feedback responses.
The User Attributes values themselves will not appear with the response, this includes the user's User ID.
Want to see these values in responses, or have other features you'd like to see use User Attributes? You can upvote a feature request! Head to our guide on how to suggest a feature to Hotjar.
