Now you can search your SharePoint analytics data πŸ”πŸ“Š

Who enjoys lumbering through lists of SharePoint metrics reports? 🀷

Nobody.

That's why we made SharePoint Vitals as easy as pie to navigate: every site, user, document and page is clickable and contextually relevant so you can easily explore your SharePoint analytics data.

But something was missing until now, and that was search.

Well, it's here! πŸŽ‰

Just use the search box at the top to instantly find any user or object in SharePoint, then click through to view its stats.

Changes to SharePoint analytics "content views" metric

Our latest update to SharePoint Vitals makes some changes to the way metrics are displayed for SharePoint sites.

Specifically, SharePoint Vitals had a metric called Content Views, which we created to make it easier to get a feel for how busy any particular SharePoint site was relative to other time periods, and other sites you were comparing against.

However, we found that this metric was causing confusion as it was only relevant when doing comparisons. Because it was a "made up" metric, when used on its own it didn't tell you anything factual about the site in question.

So we decided to remove content views from throughout the app, and instead place more focus on the document views and page views metrics in relation to their sites.

Now, when you view your SharePoint site analytics you'll see two lines on the charts: one for document views and one for page views. This gives you more insight into whether users are viewing more page content, or more documents, within a site.

This also applies to Unique Viewers within a site.

And as always with any chart in SharePoint Vitals you can view this data daily, weekly, or monthly (SharePoint Vitals tracks your audit data for all-time, not just 90-days which is the limit in SharePoint).

Performance updates to processing of SharePoint audit entries

As you can imagine, capturing and processing tens of millions of SharePoint audit entries from the Microsoft Graph requires a lot of engineering, and keeping our analytics platform running smoothly is a big part of our Engineering team's focus.

Over the past two weeks they've been hard at work improving performance throughout the app to make your SharePoint Vitals experience even better!

One of the biggest improvements in this release is in the calculation of the all-time stats on the Sites and People reports. This is, of course, the total number of views You'll see a noticeable increase in the loading times of these reports.

Another big improvement is that we doubled the number of audit records we can process at a time. Although pretty much "behind the scenes," this update means faster processing of your data, so you'll see it on your dashboard quicker, especially if you're tracking millions of document views and audit records.
