Usersnap provides 5 different annotating tools which your visitors can use to add visual feedback to their current screen.

By default – when you didn’t change any tool parameters in the widget customization – Usersnap will add the highlighter tool, the pen, the arrow, the blackout tool and the comment tool.


Let’s take a look at how you can use these tools to illustrate feedback and how visualization helps the feedback process to be more intuitive and faster.


The highlighter tool may be used to indicate important areas on the page. The created highlighted areas can be easily removed by clicking the [trash bin] icon in the upper right corner.

Your users can black out private areas on your page with a black rectangle, when they think an image or block of text is superfluous. If you want to remove a blackened area you can easily remove by clicking the [bin] icon in the upper right corner.
