From the Office 365 Admin center you can Select the SharePoint Site Usage report to obtain stats about site usage. The report provides a csv export option.

The exported file contains a 'Page Views' and a 'Pages Visited' column. What's the difference between those 2 stats?

There's also a 'Files viewed or edited' column. Why can't we have a separate column for those 2 stats? Will there be a distinction between these actions in the future?

Solution

Pages views is the number of times pages were viewed on the site.

Pages visited is the number of unique pages that were visited on the site.

We're currently not planning to break out files viewed or modified.

Thanks,

Anne
