  1. Inclusion of New UI Top Banner links in Primo Analytics Action Usage Report

    We would like the links on the Links Menu that appear in the banner at the top of the screen in the new UI to be harvested into Primo Analytics and to be included in the Primo Action Usage Report. Ideally we would like usage information to be harvested for both links created by ExLibris (such as Tags, Browse etc) and also links that we have added to the menu (for example a link to our LibGuide).

    Obtaining usage information for these links will not only be very useful in determining which links we include in the top banner but…

    • Better analytics for resource recommender to tell how many times recommendation is triggered and how often it is clicked

      The resource recommender can be a very new tool to help improve the user experience of searchers.

      However without proper analytics it is hard to tell if all the effort done to create them have had an impact.

      Hence it would be helpful to have data like

      Analytics that tell staff

      a) How often a recommendation is triggered or most common recommendations shown
      b) How often a recommendation is clicked

      • Analytics - advanced search stastistics

        Hi there,

        According to SF case 422111 it's currently not possible to provide detailed statistics about advanced search field through OBI.

        As for the facets, we would like to know the number of using field by field.

        For example :
        - We would like to know how many clicks were done on search field "Topic"
        - We would like to know how many clicks were done on search field "Author"
        - We would like to know in how many session the search field document type / books was used
        - Which are the fields the most used in the advanced…

        • Primo Analytics: ability to report on Primo API usage

          Idea: Ability to report on Primo API usage (e.g. number of searches, search terms and source of API calls).

          Include usage of Primo Front End and API as part of Primo Analytics so that both can be aggregated and analysed.

          Developer Network API Analytics is not sufficient and does not provide the essential information we are looking for, e.g. search terms.

          • Primo Analytics: extracts the usernames related to failed logins

            It would be great -with Primo analytics- building an analysis that extracts the usernames related to failed logins

            • Provide Statistics about use of Primo Central Collections

              It would be great if we can asses the usage of our licensed content via Primo. This will be valuable for our licensing decisions, as well it would be interesting for the hosts (Thomson Reuters, ProQuest...).

              For instance, we like to know:

              - how often users view metadata (i.e. open details tab) of records from ProQuest's Collection for Dissertations & Theses

              - what is the ratio of view metadata to request fulltexts from the collection?

              - which providers (Thomson Reuters, ProQuest, ...) are used most (view + download), what are the top collections of each provider?

              • A report of "full text available" records in Primo Central for each institution

                It would be great to be able to get a report of the institutional holdings that have been matched to records in Primo Central, so that they are indexed as "full text available" for the institution. This would enable libraries to see which active portfolios in each SFX KB target / Alma CZ collection are indexed at all in Primo Central, and how much of the holdings of each serial are indexed. Libraries could then use this to indicate to users which journals and collections cannot be found in Primo Central. It would also be useful to see gaps in…
