Reminder about past releases
Exciting update: vNow and vNext are now synchronized! This ensures that clients receive the most up-to-date versions of both every week. Take a look at the newest enhancements for vNow here.
Updates to sitewide analytics - everything you need to know PLATFORM
For site admins, platform data is now easier to examine because it is visually graphed and categorized. This new Basic Analytics page can be added and accessible through the More navigation menu but is only accessible to site admins.
Comprehensive updates and improvements have enhanced the basic analytics page with new tools and functionality to provide administrators with valuable insights into various activities and engagements across the platform.
The Basic Analytics page has two tabs; Examine your Data and User Activity Reporter; each has unique benefits for administrators. For this release, we will focus on the examine your data tab.
Please note that all existing analytics pages and reports are still available. This page is an addition to existing reports.
Examine your data
This page categorizes your data into seven unique tabs with different widgets. The tabs and filters at the top of the page help you quickly find the topic you’re looking for based on the content, activity category, and timeframe. For example, the Forum Views widget would be under Community Participation, while the Live Sessions widget would be under Event Activity. Each widget displays data in a line graph to help you understand your data over time. You can narrow that time frame even further with the Time Frame, Start Date, and End Date filters.
Widgets are expandable to see more details. Select a specific widget graph to examine the graph of a particular day in the past. Or, for even more granularity, filter the time frame to a single day and explore the chart by the hour.
Newly Updated Widgets
The Partner Meetings Scheduled widget displays the total number of meetings scheduled by each Partner, enabling better tracking of meeting activities. Additionally, the Partner Chats Initiated widget offers analytic data on the total number of chats initiated by Partners, giving insights into communication trends.
A series of widgets has been introduced to understand forum activities better. The Forum Views widget presents analytic data on the total number of views by Forum Topic, helping administrators gauge the popularity and relevance of different discussion topics. Similarly, the Forum Posts widget showcases the total number of posts by Forum Topic, offering insights into user engagement and contributions within specific discussions. The Forum Comments widget provides data on the total number of comments by Forum Topic, allowing administrators to understand the level of interaction and feedback on particular topics. Furthermore, the new Forum Topic Follows widget tracks the number of follows by Forum Topic, offering valuable information on user interests and preferences.
Additionally, two more widgets have been introduced to enhance insights into social feed interactions and group activities. The Social Feed Posts widget provides analytic data on the total number of posts by Social Feed, enabling administrators to track user-generated content and community engagement. The Group Page Views widget presents data on the total number of views by Group Page, giving insights into the popularity and visibility of different group pages.
