  1. Primo Analytics - add the ability to generate Primo Send To menu Citation Style usage

    Idea: Add the ability to generate usage statistics for each of the Citation Styles which display in the Primo Send to menu.

    Currently it is possible to report on the number of times the Citation option is selected from the Primo Send to menu.

    However it is not possible to track usage for each of the citation styles e.g. APA, Harvard, Oxford, etc.

    Use case:

    The ability to track usage for each style to:

    - Determined the order of citation styles in the display (from most popular to least popular).
    - To determine which options should continue be offered to…

  2. Primo Analytics - add the ability to monitor availability link clicks by availability category

    Currently usage statistics may be generated using the "Click on availability statement" Analytics action, however there is no way to differentiate clicks on say, "Available at" (for physical resources) and "Check online access".

    We would like the ability to extract availability clicks by category:

    Check online access
    Available at
    No full text
    etc.

    General use cases:

    To help us decide what types of links should display where and in what order in Primo.

    More specific use case:

    To help us understand how patrons are accessing electronic resources. For instance, we have added the BrowZine PDF fulltext link to Primo. We…

  3. Primo Analytics - Ability to report on all search strings, not just Popular and Zero Results

    Primo Analytics currently only includes search string data for Popular and Zero Results subject areas. It would be a vast improvement to be able to see all search string results.
    Note: This functionality is available via BIRT, but only by individual reports by first letter of the alphabet, which are unwieldy and essentially unusable in loading so slowly (and often not at all).

  4. Implement "Scheduled report to FTP server" feature for Primo Analytics

    We would like to request for "Scheduled report to FTP server" feature to be implemented for Primo Analytics, so we could schedule the Primo data in Power BI Reports/Dashboards to be automatically refreshed.

    Power BI is the enterprise solution for data visualisation in UNSW. Currently Ex Libris does not seem to support the connection between Analytics (OBIEE) and Power BI (e.g. via Web Data Connector). Instead of manually exporting data from Primo Analytics and uploading it to Power BI, we need to find a better way to automatically update the data in Power BI Reports/Dashboard.

    If we can schedule Primo…

  5. Allow analytics to display what resources are most selected after a certain search query

    It would be great to see which resources are most selected after a certain search query.

    This wouldn't even have to be an exhaustive list-- even just seeing the top three selected results for the top 100 search strings would help us better tailor recommendations (particularly in Resource Recommender) for popular search terms.

  6. Search Slot/Scope/Profile Usage in Primo Analytics

    We would like to be able to report the total number of searches that have been performed in each search/slot/scope/profile that we have configured in Primo. Currently the only report in Analytics that has Search Scope search information is the Zero Results Report.

    This information will provide invaluable information about our user behaviour and will help us in the customization of the Primo interface to meet the needs of our clients by assisting in decisions regarding adding or removing search profiles/scopes.

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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…
