WSS and SharePoint Usage Analysis Report

Before looking at how we can view the report on SharePoint Portal, let us see how we can view the report on the WSS site.

On WSS follow these steps to display the report.

·         Click on Site Settings.

Figure 6

·         Under Administration, click on the Site Administration link.

Figure 7

·         Under Management and Statistics, click on View Site Usage data.

·         The report will be displayed to you.

Sounds easy enough in the WSS site, but is it that simple on SharePoint Portal?  Yes, but there is no link provided as it is provided on the WSS site.

The SharePoint developers/administrators need to understand one important thing about SharePoint Portal: it is a collection of WSS sites.  SharePoint is built on top of WSS sites.  Once you have understood this basic principal, you will understand that you can use some of the pages in a WSS site on SharePoint portal too.

So, in order to display the report you need to use the following syntax for your sub areas.  As SharePoint Portal is made up of sites collection, you can go to any sub area you are interested in and type the path for Usage Analysis Report page.  The syntax would be: <website>/<sub area>/_layouts/1033/usageDetails.aspx.  For example, in my scenario for etekglobal website home area, it would be http://etekglobal/_layouts/1033/usageDetails.aspx.  The way I got this syntax was to copy everything starting from _layouts from the address bar on the WSS usage analysis report.  So, when the administrators would like to run reports for each sub area they can just go to the sub area and instead of using the default.aspx, they can just paste everything beginning with _layouts.  That is all!  You now have a running Usage Analysis Report.

I recommend using CardioLog for tracking SharePoint Usage data. With CardioLog, not only will you be able to determine the most used pages, the least used pages, but you will also have in-depth insight into portal growth, portal visitors, portal navigation and search. They have a free 30 day Enterprise trial so you can test out the product before buying.

Hi,

This article was of a great help to me. This could have been even better if you could tell how to keep track of User-Website-Number of Hits. Yes this covers User and Number of Hits, but leaves blank which website was browsed.

How can I customize the site usage report. For an example if I wish to show the username instead of userid in usage report?
Title: More interesting and needed report

It would be interesting to have a report that shows data all over the portal, i.e. it is interesting to know what pages are the most visited in the whole portal.
