Summon Event Statistics, 2014-15

This morning Jeff asked me for a report on the past year’s worth of Summon interactions. When we moved to Summon 2.0, I started tracking all of our events in Google Analytics, rather than in our home-grown statistics tracker. Looking over the report was quite interesting, so I thought I would share it with you all. You’ll see some entries that look awfully similar, (contentType vs ContentType) because sometimes the Summon interface is inconsistent with how the code displays the different features. Anyway, this PDF report shows the top 50 events in Summon over the past year. (There were a total of 368,918) The #1 event, “page”, is triggered whenever someone scrolls to the bottom of the page to load more results. Let me know if you have any questions or want to see more details about a particular result.
