How to use Post Insights

At a brief glance, you'll find important data on an individual post including view/read time, related users, creation date, and last updated date.

Usage graph

The graph at the top provides day-to-day usage metrics for posts. See when users engage most with a post by filtering between view or read data, and selecting a timeframe. Posts with high views could indicate that they are high value, and it's worth considering having them verified to keep them up to date.

Related users

Each post has a single owner, but throughout its lifetime, there could be many contributors and readers. Let's break down the different types of users in a post:

  • Owners: Have all permissions to a post. By default, the post creator is the owner, and the owner is also a contributor and reader.

  • Contributors: Anyone who makes an edit to a post (contributors show up with a delay after editing).

  • Readers: Anyone who has viewed the post at any point. They may no longer have access to the post, depending on the permission change.

To expand the entire list of contributors and readers, click the number pill to the right of the profile pictures.
