At Jive World '16 we showcased the concept of Personal insights which would provide every Jive cloud user with a knowledge of their social graph and the impact of their contributions to the Jive community. With 2016.2 we are announcing the general availability of this feature to all Jive cloud customers. This is perhaps our most expansive analytics feature till date which touches every Jive cloud user and provides visibility that users did not have previously.


Jive users will now be able to know what their social graph,their most popular content, their contribution trends and their personal reach, impact and sentiment based on their contributions. This will provide a level of self gratification to the users, which would likely result in a higher level of engagement on the community.


Product discussion with Chris Liddell, Senior Manager, Engineering


Personal Insights


The following insights are available to users:


Reach, Impact and Sentiment

Building on the definitions of content impact metrics -  the reach, impact and sentiment metrics provides users with an understanding of their personal reach , their impact on the community based on their content and the kind of sentiment their content has generated. These three metrics combined provides users with excellent visibility into their impact on the community.


Social Graph and Profile Type

Personal insights gives users the ability to understand their social graph in terms on interactions that they have had with different departments or Individuals.

Additionally, users get an understanding of their profile type based on their contributions patterns. The profile type is based on Jive's definition of user adoption.


Personal Impact

The personal impact aspect of the insights page provides users with an understanding of how their contributions trended over the past twelve months and the the impact they have made on the community. This graph allows users to understand their monthly contribution trends.


Popular Content

Finally, the top content gives users insight to their top 20 content items by Views, Comments Likes or Shares. Users can click on any of the metrics names to get their top content by the selected metric.

The 2015.3 release marks a critical milestone for Jive Analytics. We are excited to announce the release of a new analytics microservice which enables us to deliver new analytics reports, dashboard and features quickly and rapidly in a unified, central location. With this new service, we will be rolling out new analytics functionality every few weeks and users can expect to see new dashboard and new analytics features at a more regular cadence. Central to this service is the ability to deliver new dashboards, and the first dashboard that we are releasing is the Engagement analytics Dashboard.


The Engagement analytics dashboard, leverages community best practices to provide a central location for community managers to track engagement and vibrancy. The first version of the engagement dashboard will include two reports, the User to user interaction report and the Engagement Index report. Within a span of two to four weeks, two additional reports will be added to this dashboard - the DAU/MAU Report and the Registered Users Report. You can expect to see regular updates to this dashboard throughout the upcoming months.

Every quarter we add new analytical functionality to our Jive platform to give community manager new ways to understand the community. In the past these analytical capabilities have been focused on giving managers the ability to track adoption and activity. Over the past quarter, we have engaged actively with our Senior strategist to define an engagement metric that allows community managers to measure engagement. While the activity and adoption measures provide an accurate gauge of community health, they don't account for how engaged a community is. Its very possibly for a community to have a lot of activity and adoption , but it may not have the necessary engagement needed for a sustainable community. The Engagement Index chart provides this capability to measure and track engagement.


Additionally, we've re-organized the reports so community managers can easily find the reports they are looking for. We're also introducing unique capabilities: the user interaction diagrams which show who's talking to who and allows community managers to track vibrancy.This chart allows community managers to track vibrancy and identify teams or departments that may be set up as silos


Product Discussion with Claire Flanagan, Director of Business Value Strategy.



Engagement Index

The Engagement Index chart can be used to review community engagement as well as user activity, and watch how this changes over time. Typically, organizations calculate community engagement based upon responses to visitor surveys. With this release, we introduce a new metric "Engagement" which uses activity data to measure engagement. Given that data is used to define Engagement of a community, it makes it very easy to track engagement without having to surface complex surveys.

To calculate Engagement Index, we take the total activities for a particular period and divide them by the total active users for the same range. The higher the number, the more engaged the community.



Metric Definitions:

Engagement Index per Month = Total Activities for that Month / Total Active Users for that Month

Engagement Index per Day = Total Activities for that Day / Total Active Users for that Day

User to user interaction report - Walk thru

User to User interaction chart

The user to user interaction chart allows community managers to track vibrancy of a community. The vibrancy gauge allows managers to ensure that different departments or locations are interacting actively with each other thus ensuring that the community is sticky and engaged.

The chart allows you to answer questions like: 'Are employees in the new Shanghai office collaborating with their San Francisco counterparts?' or 'Which departments in my company are most silo-ed?'. In one vivid snapshot, the chart showcases the breadth and depth of interaction amidst a company's employee base. Community managers can filter the chart by any of the defined user profile fields (hidden or otherwise).




56% of executives believe that addressing  cross-functional collaboration issues is key to their their digital transformation efforts.
