I'm having very similar issues here. I'm doing a year-end report and trying to note content counts on the first day of each month, so I can run some quick calculations in Excel to find how many new pieces of content were created the previous month. I'm finding that SAP BIOD is mostly not returning results based on the "Content count" metric and when it does, it's wildly different from either the CMR or what I expect by manually counting things.
Perhaps someone at Jive could create some additional content count report templates for SAP BIOD that work well and share with the public? Seriously unhappy with the reporting system, it's not easy at all to pull anything but basic numbers, and in this case, what I think is a basic number (Content count), it's not working for me at all.
Platform also has a glitch: #views (on blog post for example) also includes #impressions (times this blog post headline appears in "Popular Blog Post widget", for all users), making the number not very relevant.
Karl (the PM) is aware of it, working on it.
