Hi,

 

I was wondering if Google Analytics had the ability to track which users clicked on what document?

 

I have a site which predominately be documents and we need to understand if employees have made the effort to click on them and read them.

 

Thanks,

Cindy

Hi,

 

Yes, you can send events or virtual pageviews when a document link is clicked. Please check the document below about tracking download links:

Let me know if you have questions or if you need help with the implementation.
