Work with reports
The reporting capability is instrumental in assessing Brand Portal usage, and knowing how internal and external users interact with approved assets. Administrators can view Brand Portal Usage report, which is always available on Asset Reports page. However, reports for user logins and assets downloaded, expired, published, and assets shared through links can be generated and viewed from Asset Reports page. These reports are helpful in analyzing asset deployment, which let you derive key success metrics to measure the adoption of approved assets within and outside your organization.
The report management interface is intuitive and includes fine-grained options and controls to access saved reports. You can view, download, or delete reports from the Asset Reports page, where all previously generated reports are listed.
