Backoffice Analytics

The Backoffice analytics allows the domain administrator to monitor domain configuration activity.

There are seven indicators :

  1. Actions: Frequency and distribution of administrative actions (edit and publish datasets or pages, add users to the domain etc). Gives you precious information about what your users do and how they spend their time on the platform. Also remember that like with every charts on OpenDataSoft you can filter the variables displayed by clicking on the legend labels.
  1. Number of users: Number of users that had an activity on the platform during the period.
