You’ve sent a video or image to someone. It is of paramount importance they receive it, but you have no way of seeing if they received it or not. Worry no more! With our analytics feature, you can see not only who has viewed your content, but who has interacted and engaged with it as well!
Below are the features that enable you to keep track of who interacts and engages with the links you create, and tips on how to best make use of them. Some features are available on paid plans only.
How are views counted and where can I find that info?
In the app
In Cloudapp 6 you can click on the app icon, scroll to your uploaded content, and see how many people have viewed it on the right-hand side.
In the dashboard
You can also view analytics on the web application dashboard by clicking on the application icon, then the globe icon. The globe icon is located next to the gear icon on the upper right hand side. Alternatively you can access the dashboard through logging into getcloudapp.com.
For individual links
All users opening the link to view your shared content will count as a view. We do not count when you are logged in and view your own links. There are multiple ways to see how many users viewed your content: in the apps, in the dashboard, or on each link.
We also send you an email and in-app notification the first time someone views your link or comments on your content. If the viewer of your content has a CloudApp account and is logged in, this notification will include the email of the viewer. Anonymous users represent users that are not logged in to a CloudApp account.
You can remove these notifications by: logging into the web application, then clicking on your profile dropdown menu on the upper right hand corner, then selecting the settings tab, and lastly selecting the notifications on the left blue panel
You can find more information in the "Analytics" section
Depending on your plan, different engagement information will be available to you:
- View count, in-app and email notifications (free)
- Track screenshots and videos
Advanced analytics (Pro, Team, Enterprise) :
- list of emails of logged-in users who last viewed your content (200 max).
- Users under the Enterprise plan can also:
- view when the content was accessed
- Export analytics as a CSV
- View when the content was accessed and see how much of a video was viewed
Enforce user email collection
Members of pro, team, and enterprise accounts can set a specific permission on their links requiring viewers to enter an email. This is especially useful if the content is restricted, or if you want to have a simple email capture over your content.
To do this, click on the app, select the three dots next to the content, then select ‘security settings’. This will bring up a list of all those security options.
