For this report to register, however, you need to be making use of our site tracking feature so that we can track this activity.

Using the report

Firstly, the 'Page views overview' lists all of the pages on your website which were viewed as the result of a click through from your campaign, along with how many times each page was viewed and how many of those views were unique visitors.

If you have more than one site that you're tracking, you can filter by site.

Clicking on Export here will allow you to export the page views overview data into a CSV file.

Clicking on a particular URL for a page will display the 'Page views' report, showing each recipient that viewed that page and how many times they viewed it.

Clicking on More details provides further detail about a particular recipient who visited, displaying a window showing each page they visited and the date and time of the viewing. This allows you to build a comprehensive picture of a particular recipient's interest area.

    Hi

    When will it be possible to export a list of the Contacts that have triggered a Page View in the reporting along with the Pages they have viewed?  Essentially its the same report as the Links Clicked report so if I have clicked 5 links, I appear on 5 different rows with details of the links I have clicked,keyword,datetime etc.

    I know this is possible to extract via the API, but this requires additionally work and would be much better and powerful to have within the Reporting Suite myself in my opinion.

    Thanks

    Hi Jon,

    Putting export functions on the existing table sounds quite doable; we've got an open feature request for it (it looks like you've already voted for) at:  support.dotmailer.com/entries/341933-export-page-views.

    Although, it sounds like you want to be able to export all the page views for a campaign at once; so that would be a new view of the table (all clicks for all links)?

    Hi Stoo,

    As long as the export allows the user to export ALL the Page Views that have resulted from a campaign then I think that is what majority of users would want.  My assumption is the report will contain the openers email address or contact id, URL the page view code tracked and when it happened.  If its possible to include the keyword that they clicked on the email campaign and Contact Data Fields that would be even more useful.

    It's essentially a more comprehensive version of  http://apiconnector.com/API.asmx?op=ListCampaignPageViews

    Thanks

    Jon
