Track User Search


(Bolarinwa Balogun) #1

Hi,
I am working on a discourse setup to be used for a school discussion board. For analytics purposes, I wanted to know if it is possible to view and keep track of search queries made by users. I also wanted to ask about good data visualization tools that work well with discourse.

Thank you.

In the recently released Discourse 1.9 version, as an admin you are able to view what search terms your users are using in the search bar. Don’t know if you can get individual users search data.

If you use Google Analytics, you can set it up there. See:

To track Discourse searches, add q as the query parameter in the property’s view settings:

11%20PM
