Event managers can use the ‘Stats’ page in the VCD to get statistics that relate to attendees, session, companies, assets, and more. Event managers can filter their data by date range and have the ability to export all data to separate CSV files.

This article will cover the following:

Viewing and filtering stats

Event managers can filter and view stats for different date ranges. This enables the event manager to better understand how the VCD platform is being used before the event dates, during the event, and post event. Event managers must first access the admin portal of the VCD in order to view the ‘Stats’ page. Once logged in, event managers can take the following steps:

  1. Hover over the vertical menu bar on the left hand side

  2. Select Stats > Stats

  3. Use the ‘Date Range’ dropdown to choose a date range to include stats for or select a pre-defined date range (example: Pre-Event, During Event, Post Event), then click “Apply”

  4. View the charts/graphs directly on the screen OR click ‘Raw data’ for the raw data used in chart/graph

  5. (Optional) Click “Full Screen” to open a new window with the charts and graphs displayed in a full screen view

Note: Jump to specific areas of the page by selecting the type of content along the top (example: ‘Actions’, Sessions, ‘Posts’).

Exporting stats

Data for the graphs/charts can also be exported outside of the VCD. Selecting “Export” will email the event manager a zipped file containing a CSV file (Excel) file showing raw data for each chart/graph. The “Export” option is located in the top left of the ‘Stats’ page:

Once “Export” has been selected, an email will be sent to the event manager containing a link to download the zipped file containing CSV files with data for each graph.

Website activity stats

Event managers can switch from viewing stats about attendees and VCD content to ‘Google Analytics’ which provides further detail on website activity. Event managers can access these stats by doing the following:

  1. Hover over the vertical menu bar on the left hand side

  2. Select Stats > Stats

  3. Select “Google Analytics” at the top

  4. Allow page to load stats regarding website activity

  5. (Optional) Filters by ‘Date Range’ and click “Apply”

  6. (Optional) Click “Full Screen” to view the information on a full screen

Ad campaign stats

Looking for stats related to your ad campaigns to provide to companies (sponsors)? Stats related to ad campaigns can be found on the Ads > Campaigns page. Locate the campaign and select “Stats” on the right hand side.

More information about ads can be found in our ‘How do I use Adverts in the VCD’ support article.

Stat descriptions

Stats are separated into the following groups; Attendees, Invited Attendees, Actions, Companies, Sessions, Abstracts/On Demand Content, Posts, Assets, and Page Content. Within each group are various stats and graphs that will display data. Depending on what features are used for the VCD event, not all areas will show data.
