Add Usage Metrics capturing Dashboard Views
As a dashboard owner, I would like to know which dashboards are being used the most, by whom, and see count of views over time.
As we evaluate "usage" of these MDB Charts Dashboards, I want to know if people are even using them "enough" to justify investing in creating or enhancing dashboards.
I realize I could embed these charts into a separate website and slap Google Analytics onto the site to gain analytics / usage information. In lieu of this native feature, would you recommend that approach?
We think this is a great idea and reasonable need. A few customers have asked us for this previously. We want to get you this information. We should be pursuing a solution in this area in the mid to long term (nothing on the backlog yet). We will most likely start by showing some basic metrics to users in their project in Atlas Charts. Being able to see the "views" of a dashboard or a chart. And some trends.
Your comment sounds like you might be embedding dashboards. Is that correct? If embedding, yes you could wrap your own analytics or telemetry around the dashboard container to measure its usage. If needing these metrics inside Atlas Charts it will be up to us to expose that to you. And this feature request will help.
