Users & Usage analytics shows you the learners on your team and their activity on Pluralsight Skills. Users & Usage analytics lets you drill down into a particular individual's activity to see where they're spending their time and what they're accomplishing with Skills.

Web report

To get started:

  1. Click Analytics in the left navigation panel.
  2. Click the Users & Usage tab in the top center panel.

Users & Usage analytics includes two views:

  • The default view is the All-users dashboard.
  • When you click a particular user, you'll see their User detail dashboard.

All-users dashboard

The All-users dashboard provides high-level data on your users.

  1. The Overview gives you a snapshot of your team's overall usage. The data fields include:
  2. The View time visualization shows the usage for specific points along the timeline. The interval between data points depends on your selection in the date range filter. Hover your mouse over a specific data point for more details.
  3. You can customize both the web and CSV reports with the date range filter.

    Tip: To see Overview data for a specific date, set both the start and end dates to the same date.

  4. You can customize both the web and CSV reports with the teams filter. To view unassigned users, make sure all teams are deselected.
  5. You can download a CSV report of your analytics data (discussed below).
  6. You can filter the Users table by entering a name or email. This does NOT filter the CSV report.
  7. The Users table shows details for your team's users. Clicking a user opens their User page dashboard (discussed below). You can click any of the labels to sort by that field, and click again to toggle between ascending and descending. The page's default view is sorted by usage time beginning with the top users. The data fields include:

User detail dashboard

The User detail dashboard shows rich usage details for the selected user, broken down by content type.

  2. You can click View public profile to view the user's public-facing profile page.
  3. You can customize the web report with the date range filter.
  4. The content cards display one card per content type the user has interacted with during the selected date range.

The following content cards are available, depending on your plan and what the user has interacted with. Each card contains data unique to its content type and a list of up to three pieces of content.

  • Skill IQs: Includes the total number and a list of the most recent Skill IQs taken, with their respective levels. If your plan includes advanced analytics, each Skill IQ in the list also includes a skill progression visualization.
  • Video courses: Includes the total view time and a list of the most recent video courses interacted with, along with their respective durations. A checkmark in the list indicates the user has completed the video course.
  • Roles: Includes the total number assigned and a list of the top roles, ordered by level. Each role in the list shows either the current level, or the number of Skill IQs completed over the number included in the role.
  • Labs: Includes the total number and a list of the most recent labs taken, with their respective result.
  • Tech Foundations: Includes the number of modules taken and a list of the most recent modules taken, with their respective result.
