In-screen analytics for Scrollable screens

When you have a scrollable screen in your App, performing In-Screen analytics (UI Analysis > Screens) becomes more of a challenge. 

Appsee is able to recognize all of the In-Screen Actions (tapping on buttons, selecting from a list) in scrollable screens, however Heatmap analysis would not provide you a meaningful picture as the gestures the user performs on the screen have different context for each of the stopping points of the scroll.

As a workaround, each time the scrolling stops you can call a function that decides what is the current screen that the user is on and call the appsee.StartScreen("NAME") method to denote a new screen. 

See here for more information on setting screens manually.

For example, if you use sticky headers you can get the name of the current screen from the header that is currently visible.
