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.

In addition to analytics by geography, I'd also like to be able to download all analytics values as a CSV file, with detailed analytics for each published file, and the ability to specify the date range for the associated metrics (e.g. the number of views between date X and date X). Ideally, the downloaded CSV file would include a row for each document that I've published via the Publish Online feature, so that I wouldn't need to go into each upload one by one to see or download the relevant analytics values. Thanks in advance for your consideration!

This would be such a great feature and make it much more worth using. Currently I need to use and pay for a different software which gives this sort of much needed data.

Echoing the need for more data here. Country of origin, time spent on document broken down into pages, links clicked, etc.
Personally I am sending links to a small number of clients and would greatly value having their names and contact details if they choose to view my presentation. This is already the standard in frame.io which is also an Adobe company I believe. Please ask the user to enter name, email, title to proceed with the document.

The option to track where users came from to view your document would be a very helpful addition to the Publish Online analytics features. This would allow us to analyze which source that our document is shared through is getting the most traction. For example, did people click a link from our social media posts or our website? Etc.
Would love to be able to get individual page analytics - it is much more useful that having just the overall doc analytics please
When a publication is published online and there is the option to download it as a pdf, it would be helpful to have information on how many copies where downloaded. Please include that feature/analytic on the dashboard. Thank you!
Please add a download counter for how many times your published document is downloaded to the Publications Analytics. This would be so useful as part of counting metrics of user engagement!
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.
A feature that allows you to download a comprehensive report of data from publishing a document online so that you can compare data from different documents.
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 think it would be great if statistics could be filtered by date. We use same links (replace old advertisement with new one) and would like to see statistics week by week. Just seeing stats from whole lifespan do not serve us well.
Btw - the (finnish) feature request form lacks some text below, next to the accept check box (please see the attachment)

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.
