Funnels: Record an action funnel session

Creating action funnels manually can be time-consuming. A browser extension lets you record an action funnel session with all the steps. Each action and the elements they are acted on are captured and saved for the accessFlow scanner to run an audit. The funnel is executed during the regular audit process and the results are displayed in the dashboard.

Recording an action funnel is supported on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Note: If you have configured steps to bypass a login wall, accessFlow automatically executes these steps and logs you in to the site before executing the steps in the funnel. See Configure Scan Parameters

1. Go to Funnels on the top menu.
