    Are Subscription hits counted in the Admin Activity views?

      Trying to get a full picture of our user usage - are Subscriptions included in the Server Activity and/or User Activity Admin views? If not, could someone who only receives info via subscriptions show as having no usage in these views (and therefore look like a non-utilised user when they are in fact consuming dashboards)?

          Hi Malcolm,

           

          Yes and No.  The subscription goes out to Tableau Server and pulls the viz, renders the snapshot image and sends it to the recipient.  You can view the activity in Tableau Server and filter on the action type View Subscription Sent.

           

          I think it's important to understand that a snapshot (subscription) does not constitute interactivity.  There's a record the view was queried and sent to a user, but unless that user opens the dashboard, they're really not looking at the view.

           

          Hope that helps.
