Collection Reports

Note: Unless you have one of the server rights ("Add collections", "Delete collections", "Administer user rights", or "Setup global Website"), you can only access the reports for a collection if you have the "Run reports and export metadata" right for that collection. If you cannot access the collection reports that you need, contact the CONTENTdm site administrator, and ask them to grant you the "Run reports and export metadata" right for the appropriate collections.

To view a collection report:

  1. Open the CONTENTdm Administration page from the Project Client or in your Web browser:

    http://your.server.address/cgi-bin/admin/start.exe

  2. Enter your user name and password if prompted.

  3. Click the Collections tab and then click Reports.

    The following collection reports are available. On the View line, click the name of the report you want.

  • Item Pageviews. Use the Current collection dropdown, then click change, to see the pageviews for the chosen collection. By default this report displays data for the current month; use the Month to display dropdown, then click change, to see data for a different month. Note that the item titles are linked to the items themselves. You can also Export data as a tab-delimited text file to get a spreadsheet-readable version of the report.
