Your Feedback: Fixed Analytics

re.vu dashboard analytics

Recently, one of our users used the UserVoice feature on our site to let us know that the Analytics tab of her Dashboard was not showing any data. She caught us moving too fast.  We have fixed a nasty bug that affected the Analytics of a number of our users.  Thanks, Jennifer!

In addition to Average Time Spent on Page and Page Views, Re.vu Analytics also keeps track of how many times your Resume has been viewed, how many times it's been downloaded, and how many times you've been contacted.  We have some exciting new analytics coming soon.  Do you have a great idea for a useful metric?  Something you'd love to know about your viewers?  Let us know!

We're getting tremendous feedback.  If we haven't responded to your specific feedback, don't think we haven't read it.  We have.  We are always grateful for your help in making Re.vu better.
