I think you have the Excel spreadsheet that extracts data from your datamart. If so - and if it hasn't been significantly modified - check out the Network - Groups tab. You'll see the following for a given period:
- Popular Groups based on New Members Joined per Month
- Top Groups by Participation
- Top Groups by All Activity
- Lowest Groups by Activity
- Compound (newly created) Group Growth
Let me know if this isn't the case, and I'll work with Paul and Geetha to get you what you need.
Thanks for your response. Apologies it has taken me so long to get back to you.
I am looking for a gauge of activity for all the groups on Bupa Live - not just the lowest and the highest. I receive a report from your colleagues http://www.jivesoftware.com/jivespace/thread/55101 detailing what the groups are.
Is there any way we could add:
- new members joined per month (either last 6 months or since it started)
- all activity
figures to this spreadsheet for each and every group?
Are these figures measured per month or is it one figure since the group started? Does that make sense?
I've passed this on to Geetha...
Thank you. When do you think I might here back from Geetha?
I have earmarked a block of time on Thursday (3/11) morning to start working on this and should be able to wrap it up in a few hrs and send it to you so you should have it late Thursday or very early Friday-- would that work?
thank you - yes
Once you have your metric, what do you plan to do with it?
Is there a baseline that you can compare against?
In general, what do you think of the vitality here at Jivespace?
I consider myself to be a guest here.
In an effort to further spur discussion and contribute to the vitality of this group, I posted a link to an article I found online about group vitality.
Today a Jive competitor commented to me regarding this discussion thread and my reference to one of their employee's blog postings.
Having been a community manager, I would have been concerned if members in my community were linking to the competition's discussion.
In the interest of being a good member of this community - I've deleted my post (w/link) from April 13.
No worries linking to competitors' stuff, if it serves the needs of this community. Thanks for caring, though!
