Reports Overview

Searches Report: In the TeamSlide searches report, you’ll find a list of users, user emails, dates and times of searches performed, terms searched, and total results. This report will help you understand slides, images, and videos your users are looking for.  For example, you might find users often search for specific terms that receive few results, highlighting a gap in your content.

Downloads Report: In the TeamSlide downloads report, you’ll notice many more columns than in the other report types. This report details each username, email, time of download, object description (typically title), file name, slide number, search terms, and position in results. The downloads report will communicate which content is most relevant to your team.

If you have customized metadata fields, they can also be included in the downloads report. This, for example, gives you an understanding of the most used slides by each field.

Feel free to contact us if you have custom reporting needs.
