I’ve just read this fantastic interview with Lloyd Tabb and it got me thinking about how engaged our own Looker users are. Currently I’m charged with “Creating a data-driven culture” within the company and one of the things I track as a proxy to that behaviour is Looker usage. But my metrics are mostly vanity metrics such as ‘number of accounts’, ‘daily active users’ and ‘total web usage minutes per day’. This is fine at a top level but when talking to people I sometimes discover they are only checking saved Looks and dashboards that other people have sent them as they don’t know how to make their own, completely missing the benefit of the system.
Does anyone know how to use ilooker to identify users that may need a refresher course and generally monitor user behaviour in the same way we do for our actual business? Also, is there a reason why ilooker is so hidden away and the history table is limited to the last three months? It would be great if this mysterious part of Looker was promoted to a proper LookML model. (Even if it was read only.)
