On my space homepage there is a "Most Viewed Documents" section that indicates I can provide a link to the most viewed documents by typing "/link". However, when I follow these instructions I am provided with a generic hyperlink window with no obvious way to query the documents for viewer statistics. I would love to include this section on the homepage but I'm not sure what to do. Am I missing something obvious?
@Rachael Gresham this one had me stumped for a bit, but I finally think I figured it out.
First, I didn't realize that your space was a Documentation space, which is why I was confused by your screenshots. The screen you posted is the template for documentation space.
Then, I was equally confused by the default text that Atlassian chose for Most Viewed Documents. It seems that this tool should be just like Recently Updated, which populates a dynamic list of the most recently updated pages in a space. But it's not.
All the page template is suggesting here is that the admin (you) create a list of the most viewed documents by listing them in this section using the /link macro. This would have to be a list of documents you know users are commonly accessing, or documents you want them to access. It would create a static list of links based on each document or page you insert - which can be updated manually at any time.
I hope this helps. If it does, please upvote my answer and mark it as accepted!
Thank you for the response. You confirmed my suspicions; it initially seemed like this is something that should work similarly to the Recently Updated tool, but as you mentioned it doesn't actually work that way. I don't see the benefit of manually linking documents and suggesting they are the most viewed, but I can rename the section to more appropriately represent the collection I end up providing there.
Thanks again for looking into this and for the sanity check; I was afraid there was something I was overlooking.
@Rachael Gresham I'd love to (try to) help! Can you post a screenshot of the text or prompt that you are trying to follow? I see the screenshot of the link macro, but would like to see the prompt telling you that you can add a link to the Most Viewed Documents.
Also, are you on Cloud, Server or Data Center edition?
