The CardioLog Usage Reports SharePoint Feature enables you to view usage reports from within your SharePoint website by using the SharePoint Site Actions menu. The basic process consists of two steps:

  1. The CardioLog system administrator creates and publishes Report Templates
  2. Each SharePoint page displays a link to CardioLog Analytics usage reports in the Site Actions menu. Clicking on the link will generate a report for the current page based on the report templates.


How to View a Report From SharePoint's "Site Actions" Menu

In the Site Actions menu gear on the desired SharePoint page, click Site Statistics to run a usage report for the page you are visiting. The report will be displayed in a new browser tab or window depending on your browser's preferences.

CardioLog Analytics generates usage reports and includes Table, Chart, Meter and Map widgets

  • Meter - A component that displays a single, exact value. Meters can display data in both Specific mode** and Aggregated mode*. By default meters display data in Aggregated mode*.
  • Chart - A graph component that displays data over time (trends). Charts display data in both Specific mode** and Aggregated mode*. By default charts display data in Aggregated mode*.
  • Table - A component used to display a list of data. Tables display data in "Aggregated mode*. Each table row displays data in Specific mode**.  The data for each item is specific to that item URL.
  • Map - A map component which displays geo data. 

* Displays the data for the website item and anything it comprised of (for example a site and all its sub sites, lists, list items and documents). 
** Displays the data for the home page of the item (for example the home page of the site).
