From the Analytics overview page, Subscription Admins with an Enterprise license can find insights into how users are directly interacting with the VisualSP application:

  • Snapshot of your Return on Investment (ROI) for a specified date range
  • Which scopes (SharePoint Online, Yammer, OneDrive, PowerApps, etc.) are being used
  • Search terms users are looking for within the VisualSP Help panel
  • What Help items were viewed by each user
  • Which Help items are seeing the most engagement/most valuable, and by whom
  • Clicks by browser and media type

To view the analytics:

  1. Click the Help tab to open the Help panel
  2. From the hamburger menu, click on View Analytics
