Voyager Analytics

Voyager's Analytics Extension allows you to visualize your data in a variety of ways, such as the distribution of data types by location or the distribution of indexing errors over time. There are numerous templates for creating graphic representations of the Analytics results. Apart from distribution of data attributes, Analytics can also show how users have interacted with your data, including viewing, downloading or liking/disliking.

Analytics can use the entire Index for analysis, or can focus on the results of a specific saved search to get more detailed results. The results can also easily be shared with other users. 

Before you can access Analytics, make sure that:

  • You are currently logged in to a running instance of Voyager
  • The Analytics Extension is enabled
  • Analytics have been enabled by an Administrator
  • You have the View Analytics permission
