Using Alfresco Analytics

With Alfresco Analytics you can use and create reports that give full visibility over content and activities in Alfresco.

There are a range of reports that can give oversight of anything from the most active Alfresco users, to the content that's currently hot in a particular site.

Reports are split into two categories, My Reports and Site Reports.

My Reports - Analytics across the whole of Alfresco. Available by adding them to your Alfresco Dashboard.

Site Reports - Analytics on a specified site. Can be seen by any Alfresco user who's a member of a site which has them added to its site dashboard.

If you're a member of the new Business Analyst group, then you can also create your own custom reports, so that you can really drill down into Alfresco to find the information that's important to your business.

What you can do with Alfresco Analytics depends on your Alfresco user role. Speak to your Alfresco Administrator for more details.
