What can I track with Trackable links?

Product: FlippingBook Online

This article applies to FlippingBook Online Advanced and Team. Advanced Analytics is not available in the Starter and Optimal plans. To get access to advanced analytics, you can upgrade in your online account.

After you have shared a trackable link with your audience, you can look up detailed information about how visitors of that trackable link have interacted with your flipbook. This gives valuable insight into such things as which pages they viewed and how much time they spent there. This can be very helpful in a follow-up discussion with e.g. clients with whom you shared a proposal using a trackable link.

To view the detailed usage information, simply click on the link name to unfold the detailed data. (Obviously, when nobody viewed your trackable link yet, there is no information to show. In that case, the little arrow in front of the link will be grey.)

In the default view, you can see how much time your visitors spent on each page. The horizontal axis shows the page numbers; the vertical axis shows the number of seconds that your visitors spend on this page in total.

  1. Hover over a page to see a quick preview, so you can see the information that your visitor was interested in and how many seconds or minutes they spend on that page in total. If your reader visited the page several times, then all the individual times are added up.
  2. You can see how many of the pages in your flipbook your reader has viewed. This will never exceed the total number of pages in your flipbook, i.e. multiple views of the same page are not counted. You can also see how many unique links your reader has clicked.
  3. Icons denote if your visitor used a desktop device, a mobile device, and/or if they downloaded your PDF. In the example above, your visitor used a desktop. 
  4. By default, we show information for 25 pages. If your flipbook contains more than 25 pages, then you can drag the slider sideways to see information about the other pages. You can also extend (or shorten) the slider to show information for more (or less) pages on the screen.  

If your visitor clicked on any links in your flipbook, then you can click on the text unique clicks (next to the pages viewed) to see exactly on which links they clicked and how often. In the example below, our visitor clicked on 6 different links: two links were clicked twice, the other 4 were visited once.


A note on privacy
If you send a trackable link to a single person, then you are gathering information about this person. Even though you are not immediately tracking thousands of users, gathering personal information comes with responsibilities. We advise you to familiarize yourself with applicable privacy regulations!
