To whom it may concern,
We have a couple of analytics questions
  • Can a Google Analytics report be run on a Canvas Page?  
    • If yes, then what data can we get.  What we want is (is this possible?).
      • Count of unique visits
        • Dates (Timeline) for the unique visits
      • Count of repeat visits
        • Dates (Timeline) for the repeat visits 
    • If yes, then can the report be automated?
  • If Google doesn’t work, is there an integrated tool that we can use to find the same information?
    • We heard that we could use Tableau but we are unfamiliar with that tool.
Context, we are doing a quick pilot test with a generic login into Canvas, and the generic login does not tell us which student has accessed or how often.
Please let us know where we might be able to find this information and thanks for your help,
