  • Hi Denise. You can see how many pieces of content were viewed in the Content tab of analytics. Scroll down to Content published to view those numbers. You can also scroll down to the bottom of that Content tab to view Most viewed pages, and download a CSV of that data to see everything.

    If there are 50,000 unique views, that means 50,000 people saw that content at least once.

  • Hi Brenda. Are you viewing page analytics or app-wide analytics? If the former, there's a toggle button that you can select to show either All or Unique content views on that single piece of content. In app analytics, it will tell you both the unique views and total views.

  • Hi Maureen. If you're referring to the CSV file you get from the Sites tab > Most popular, then no, those are total views.

  • Are content views unique or total views? For example, if a department shows 2,715 views for content - could that be 20 people looking at things multiple times or unique views for 2,715 people?

  • Hello! How do I get analytics on the home dashboard traffic?

    I have a tile/link on the home dashboard and need to know how many clicks/views it's getting.

  • Hi Maureen. The Popular content metric factors in engagement such as Likes, Replies, Shares and Favorites, in addition to views. Whereas the Views metric is simply the amount of views the content received. So these metrics will typically be similar, but not necessarily the exact same.

  • Hi, Matthew,

    The tile I'm asking about links back to our old intranet - well, the one we're transitioning away from. Your answer is a big bummer, as I have no way to measure/track how many employees are still visiting our old site for information :/

    I'm surprised that you don't offer detailed analytics for the home dashboard, as that's often the entry point for employees to the intranet. Yes, they're typically driven to deeper content, but with our ongoing transition to Simpplr from our old intranet, this data would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks,
    Michelle

  • If there are 1,000 pieces of content, how do I determine how many pieces of content are being viewed? If there are 1,000 pieces of content, what does it mean when there are unique content views of 50,000 for example?

  • The "Most Popular Sites" report shows total likes, favorites, views, etc.  Is this for just the site dashboard or all/any content within the site?  So would this tell me which sites have the most popular content?

  • What is the difference between Popular and Views for Content, they seem similar

  • Hi Michelle. What type of tile is it? Are you tracking clicks to a link to a 3rd party website/outside the intranet? Or is it some kind of content tile? If users click to a website that isn't Simpplr, we don't track that it occurred from that tile. Unfortunately there is no source tracking available (i.e., how many users click a link from a certain tile).
