2. What you can do with advanced channels analytics

Channels analytics gives you a snapshot of your team members' channel usage for each channel. These snapshots help:

  • See all members' individual progress in a channel
  • See which members have completed a channel's courses
  • See when team members joined the channel

3. Overview of advanced channels analytics

To get started, log in to your Pluralsight account and click on Analytics using the left panel navigation. Next, click on Channels from the top center panel. Then, click directly on a channel.

Tip: You can also get to channels analytics from your Account Dashboard. Scroll down to the channels visualization, and click Details. Then, click directly on a channel.

Advanced channels analytics, available to Enterprise subscribers, gives you a deep view of your channel's followers and completion.

A. See statistics about your channel at a glance. If there's a description set, this will appear. You can also see the total duration of the channel's courses, how many members the channel has, and the average completion.

B. See your channel's members. You can filter these members by name.

You can click the arrow on the right of each member to display what specific content within the channel they've viewed, how much, and when.

Note: Only individuals who have clicked Join, will be shown in this view and in the report. Individuals who watch courses on the channel without joining it, don't appear in channels analytics.

C. Download a csv report of raw data about this channel's members. We'll discuss this in the next section.

4. Advanced channels analytics report

You can download a real-time .csv report that includes all active members of this channel. This advanced channels analytics report can help answer questions such as:

  • What courses within a channel path, has each of my channel members viewed?
  • When did each of my channel members last watch each course, and did they complete it?
  • I want to streamline my channel. Do I have any courses in my channel that are also in a path in my channel, that I can remove?

Columns of data included in the advanced channels analytics report:

  • Member's first name, last name, and email address
  • Member's team (blank if not on a team)
  • Date added to channel
  • Last activity
  • Channel completion (percent)
  • Content type watched (such as course, path, or external link)
  • Content title
  • Course Title
  • Link type
  • Link URL
  • Content duration (in seconds)
  • Date content last viewed
  • Content completion (percent)

5. Common questions

Question: Do external videos and articles with time durations, get tracked in advanced channels analytics?

Good question. Advanced channel analytics and the csv report show the time duration that the channel creator assigned to the video or article. For example, if the link has a duration of an hour, your channel member will be credited an hour when they click on the link.

At this time, we track if the member clicked the external link, but we don't track how much time they spent on that external resource. 

Users analytics will not be updated based on the external link time duration. That data is unique to channels analytics.
