If the Public Sharing functionality is enabled on your platform; you can view and track the detailed usage and governance of any public file that has an active Public CDN Link.
Which Files does this apply too?
If you have public sharing enabled on your platform, Admin users will be able to select which folders can be publicly shared. All supported files within these folders are available to be shared publicly, via the Share/Embed feature, which creates unique Public CDN Links that can then be used in websites, email newsletters, social media posts, etc.
Files which are enabled for Public Sharing are indicated by the Public (Planet) icon. If the file has actively been viewed in the past 30 days, this icon will be green.

Public Usage Tracking
The Public Usage Tracking page allows you to view statistics and data related to the public usage of a file. When the page loads you will automatically see a range of reports, based (by default) on the past 30 days. This information will only relate to the selected file.
By default, users can see data from the past 30 days; however this can be altered using the date dropdown menu's at the top right of the page. You will be able to select dates from within a 365 day range, with all data being held for a year.
