So I have this SharePoint 2010 Link Library . I tried to run the custom audit log report, however what I got was something like this

document id         item id       user .....
{sdf87g6adsf}      {gsd87g6sd }  jgjdg

This ids not make any sense for me. The links are NOT documents. So , how do I know what item id belongs to what link ?

My task is simple: I need to find out how many times each of my links was clicked

(PS the links are to external folders on the shared drive, not to SP pages)

  • Maybe you can use IIS logs for this. – newbie Jan 22 '14 at 19:29
  • Do I have to install SP server. Because I am not allowed to install it. If yes, is there any work around. Thank you – Borat Sagddiev Jan 22 '14 at 19:41
  • Theres is an IIS server installed on your SharePoint FrontEnd server. You can analyze it's logs. Hope this helps you. – newbie Jan 22 '14 at 19:53

If it are links to external folders, your IIS logs are no use. You can add some javascript and bind to the click event of the links and log that in a SP list or so.

  • Thank You for answer. I tried adding JavaScript. However, it gets removed automatically as I save page – Borat Sagddiev Jan 24 '14 at 15:21
