The QC Page Metrics app is a tool that helps you improve your Confluence pages, by counting the followings page attributes like the Page views, user Feedback, user Collaboration, Tasks, Content, Readability score and the Layout.
The usage of the app is quite simple since all you have to do is open a page, click on the three dots in the upper right corner and select the QC Page Metrics menu. Then, a pop-up menu will show up with information about the views of the page, the feedback users have left, how many people collaborated to create that page and more.
Let’s take a closer look at the metrics measured by the app:
- Page Views: This number shows the total users that have access to the page, that actually viewed its content.
- Views: Shows the total amount of unique page views.
- Feedback Index: It is calculated by calculating the unique Likes and the unique Comments of the page, dividing them by the Views, and then multiplying this number by 100 [(Likes+Comments)/Views *100%], to find the percentage.
- Likes: Shows the total amount of unique Likes.
- Comments: Shows the total amount of unique Comments.
Please note that when a user has liked a page and left some comments, when calculating the Feedback Index, the app will count it as one (1) interaction.
- Collaboration Index: It is calculated by diving the Contributors by the unique Page Views and then multiplying this number by 100 [(Contributors/Page Views)*100%].
- Contributors: Shows the total amount of unique users that contributed to the content of the page.
- Mentions: Shows the total amount of unique users that are mentioned (tagged) on the page.
- Total Tasks: This is calculated by adding the Complete and Incomplete tasks within a page.
- Complete tasks: Marked checkboxes of tasks that have been completed.
- Incomplete tasks: Unmarked checkboxes (tasks that have not been completed yet).
- How many Published versions of the page are there?
- How many Versions were created per year?
- How many Internal references are within the page?
- Does the page have any Images, Tables, and Attachments?
If you have any doubts about your documents and how easy it is for the users to understand the content of them, then you will find this field really useful. The ARI (Automated Readability Index) will show you the understandability of your text, while the Time to read is how many minutes it will take for a user to go through the content of the page.
- Is there a ToC (Table of Content)?
- How many Headings are there?
- Is there a Search field in the document?
