See who viewed topic


Is there a way to see all users that viewed a topic? Just curious who is viewing and not replying.

if there is a way, can it be locked to a certain security group?

This data is in the database but there is no UI to view it.

This could be a nice item for the admin/wrench menu some day…


Since this is not an ability to use via the UI. Should this topic be moved over to the suggestions category?

Thanks for replying, awesome support. Very much appreciate everyone here. Its crazy how awesome support is compared to all other companies, this is what sets Discourse apart from others on top of the forum itself. great , great, great!!!

We are looking at this for personal messages, specifically, where staff can check to see who has seen important messages.

I see there’s be no message traffic on this post for some time. And, there is still no ability to see who has viewed posts. I can understand why this might be a bit unwieldy is lots of people viewed a particular topic, but if the list was small, it would be good a moderator to be able to see who looked and did nothing more. IMHO.

I don’t know how much work, if any, has gone into making this a feature. But if you use the Data Explorer plugin you can query the topic_users table to find out who has seen a topic. Maybe JOIN with the posts table to see who has visited the topic and who has posted a reply in it?
