Track "page view count", not only "last page view date" to measure whether pages are viewed

This is an additional metric we could utilize as a key metric for our purposes.

The current "page view tracking" mechanism only stores the "last view date" as data, and it doesn't count views.
This was a deliberate design decision, because we want to minimize the load on the Confluence server to allow using the plugin on very large Confluence sites without any visible performance drawbacks.

If there is enough interest, we will most definitely review this.

    We use archiving plugin to archive page but also sometimes only to show if pages are viewed by users.

    When we dont archive pages we like to know the people how are viewing pages.

    On the content quality screen, when clicking on the statistics.action to be send to the space, it could be nice to have another tab with pages listed and in regard, the number of users who viewed it (absolute value).

    We dont need the username of duplicate time when the same user has visit the page.


    For example:


    Page 1 (255)

    Page 2 (0)

    Page 3 (1211)

       Page 3.1 (12)

          Page 3.1.1 (120)

    Page 4 (1233)


    That gives us a really helpfull hint if pages are popular.


    For us, the viewed / not viewed may not be enough at space level.


    Thanks for your help.

    I'm surprised that there are not more requests for this functionality.  It appears to be the only thing missing from quite a useful plugin.

    Is it on the roadmap yet?
