Just wondering if there was a way to see which documents users are actually using.   We have 30+ users who have full licenses to download and want to find out which users are using which documents

thanks

I have the ops monitor, but it does not show downloads, only users who view documents via access point.  This doesn't do any good since most of our users download documents and it does not show that on the ops monitor doc

Hi,

I think there is option for to know which user downloaded which document?

but yes you can know which user accessing which report it means which qvw.

not the report inside it.

Re: Can i see which documents users have downloaded?

The QlikView Server Events_xxx.log file contains a message for each started Document download. The details are:

SeverityID = 4

EventID = 700

Severity = Information

Message = FileDownload: User DOMAIN\username initiated download of document Whats New in QlikView11.qvw

You can easily make your own monitor in QlikView Desktop and publish it in the AccessPoint with a suitable reload timing, as the QlikView log files are all expressly designed to be read by QVWs.

Good luck,

Peter
