There are three report types to help measure the performance of your Collective. User, Activity and Health.
User reports measure the size of the Collective from a people perspective. For example, how many unique users are active within the tags or how many pageviews the question and answer pages receive. These reports can help you understand how many users are using your products, with the options to dig further into geographical and tag data.
Recommended first report: Total Size - Take a look at the last 30 days, selecting both page views and users with no dimensions.
For your second layer, add in tags as a dimension to bucket by the size of individual tags.
Activity reports provide data around the various types of content. Number of questions in total and over time, percentage of answered vs. unanswered questions, and more.
Recommended first reports: Total questions and answered questions within last 30 days
Health reports are calculated metrics around a Collective’s performance. Response rate is the percentage of questions that received a response within the first 24 hours and Answer rate is the percentage of questions that received a validated response (accepted/upvote/recommended answer) within the first 24 hours. These reports help measure the user experience within your tags and could even be used to establish/report against an SLA.
- Date - in some reports mandatory
