An important addition to InDesign CC’s Publish Online feature is Analytics. This service provides publishers with valuable information about the documents they publish online.

Usage data is gathered, organized, and presented in the Analytics section of the Web Dashboard (File>Publish Online Dashboard). The Overview window displays information pertaining to all published documents including number of views and readers, average time viewers spent in a document, the total time viewers spent in all published documents, and the percentages of all views per device type.

The Document Trends window reveals the number of times each published document has been viewed and the number of readers who viewed a published document.
