Viewtracker measures attachment views and displays this information in various places throughout your Confluence instance. You can promote relevant content & remove unused attachments.
Accessing the Attachment Report
Global Report: Access this report by tapping the “Attachments” entry in the Analytics Cockpit.
Space Report: Access this report by selecting the tab “Attachments” within the Analytics Cockpit of the space administration.
The report will give you the following data:
A graph of the attachment views in the entire Confluence site. The default period is the last 30 days. Click on the date picker to change the period.
File name: The file names and file types (icons) of the most popular attachments.
Space: The space in which the attachments are located.
Views: The number of views or downloads of each attachment.
File Size: The attachment size (in bytes, MB or GB).
Viewers: The number of viewers who viewed or downloaded the attachment.
Settings and filters:
Use the search field to search for specific attachments.
All other options are explained below ⤵️
Changing the date range
As a default, the data from the last 30 days are displayed. You can change that by clicking into the date field and selecting a different date range. All metrics will adapt automatically.
You can group the metrics in the graph by using “Group by” days (default), weeks, months, or years.
Choosing which metrics to display in the graph
Below the graph, there is a drop-down menu listing the available metrics. By default, “Views” are selected.
Select the metrics you want to appear in the graph, and the graph will adapt automatically. Viewtracker saves the metric selection; whenever you access the report in the future, the selected metrics will be displayed in the graph.
Saving and sharing reports
Once you’ve applied a filter or changed the report's date range, the report’s URL will adapt with parameters like ?dateValue=last.7.days&sortKey=views&sortOrder=DESC&searchText=view.
This is useful for the following reasons:
You can copy and share the URL with co-workers with the same access permission.
You can save the URL to access a customized report quickly.
