Is there a way to show which users are viewing certain content or pages in Confluence?

Hi Glen, 

We recently started using It does tell us the "who" but the reporting is a bit clunky. I have been in contact with the developer and made some recommendations. 

Hey Glenn,

if you only want to get this information for yourself, this might help you: Manage Watchers

You need to have space admin rights to see the watchers though.

Thank you for the response, Marcel.

After reading the description for Manage Watchers, it doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for. We have a page that has a link to a spreadsheet. We'd like to find out if the link is used, and possibly by whom. The goal is to determine if the spreadsheet is used by the target audience.

Both the Archive plugin from the Confluence Marketplace and Google analytics can tell if a page is being visited. Google Analytics can tell you where people came from for your spreadsheet (guessing it has a URL).

But it is the who that causes the problem.  I know of know way to say who is visiting a Confluence page or your spreadsheet.  Sorry, but Atlassian has said in other posts that they aren't going to track that information to protect the user's identity.
