Expand PublishOnline Analytics
I absolutely love PublishOnline. Is there a plan anytime soon to add to the analytics capabilities with Adobe PublishOnline anytime soon? The features on the dashboard for all published documents are great, but it would be even better to have those same analytics broken down by document - not just views and readers. I'd like to know how much time is spent, for instance, in a newsletter I've published vs. a catalog or flyer. And it would be great to know which documents tend to be read more on tablets vs desktop, rather than all of them as a whole. Many of my documents are quite different from each other and have different audiences. Any plans in the works for adding to the dashboard features?
Thank you all for your support on this feature request. Evidently, stronger analytics, would ensure better decision making.
I’ll be reaching out to some of you to gather more inputs on this feature request.
Your feedback will go a long way to help us define the feature better.

Allow analytics for embedded documents in Publish Online Dashboard.
Currently you can only see analytics for documents that are directly linked to the reader. Since the document when embedded is still hosted by Adobe Online, we should be able to see analytics for that document in the dashboard. The Embed option is great, but right now renders the analytics useless.
We would love more in-depth analytics for publish online. We would love to see analytics on individual pages but also can we see views via IP address? My employer often looks at the document and we would love to be able to exclude his data and mine from the analytics.
Where you can also get analytics on each page of a document or even the clicked buttons.
Please include readership analytics (number of readers online) by country and region, as we need to report out.

I love the publish online feature and am using it to host a free emagazine I create every month and my client loves the analytics that are available for it but I'd love to see a way for me to have those analytics emailed to me automatically at certain intervals to make it easier for me to share them with my client and it would be even better feature if we had the option to email the analytics to emails other than just our own so I could have my clients receive their document analytics directly at the interval that works for them.
Hi there Adobe, it'd be great if you could beef up the analytics for Publish Online, such that I can understand where my readers are clicking (jumping between pages), how long they're spending on each page and if they are clicking links out to other sites/documents that are linked in the doc. I'd like to understand which parts of the (quite large) docs I publish are most valuable to my readers. Thanks!

And if possible, include some broad location data, such as the state, if in the U.S. or the country, if overseas. That'd help us in marketing.

Analytics should keep track of how many people download the PDF of published document. This would be extremely helpful, and I haven't seen an improvements since Publish Online was introduced.
