To begin, sign in at psu.zoom.us and open the recordings tab.

Click one of the tabs to view a summary or filter data by view/downloads.
You will see these metrics for the recording:

  • Views: The number of times that someone viewed the recording page. This metric does not track the number of times the recording was played. Also, this metric does not count unique page views. In other words, if someone reloads the page, it will count as another view.
  • Downloads: The number of times that someone clicked Download in the cloud recording page. This metric does not track the number of times that the download was completed. In other words, if the user clicked Download but didn’t finish downloading, it still counts toward this metric.
