Is there a way to tell when a link has been clicked. We have a Document Library and want to know when a document has been clicked on. Is anything out of the box available to capture unique clicks?
There is, EMS will provide this functionality; the standard CMS (Ultimate, Base or Free license) will not unless you code specifically for it.
You may be able to do some tracking with Google Analytics.
We have purchased the CMS version. I am not familiar with the EMS version. Can you elaborate on coding specifically for it. Are you speaking of customizing the Document Library web part.
Custom coding could involve something as similar as what EMS offers OR as simple as adding a tracking code on the URL so google analytics can track it OR something on the lines of creating your own web part that allows you to track by document GUID. In your transformation for the items in the document library you can simply create a link that goes to a page with a custom webpart on it that checks for a GUID in the URL. If the GUID is a document then it logs a click to maybe a custom table based on that GUID. Pretty rudimentary but would work.
Your possibilities are pretty much endless
