You've created your pages, but how will you know if your colleagues are accessing resources and getting the most up to date information from your designed pages? Track device type, number of users, tile type clicks and more.
Insights will allow you to be able to view what people are looking at on your page as well as the page views and the average active users within a week period.
How to Use
In order to use insights, you will need LiveTiles Designers/Owners or Admin permissions for the site collection you are using insights in. Once you are in the pre-requisite group, you will see in the top right of the corner next to heatmap the insights button. This is for the Classic SharePoint / Page Designer experience. For Modern Analytics (for Modern SharePoint), you will need to be an Analytics Admin or Member, as discussed here.
If Insights haven't been enabled in your tenant, you will be able to enable them from the side panel that hosts insights. Once enabled, you won't need to re-enable permissions for Analytics.
Once permissions have been established, a side panel will appear from the side of the product, allowing you to be able to be able to see the insights of your page.
Note: For Insights and the Heatmap to display analytics data correctly, the full page url needs to be used. So in the case of using a subsite, users need to explicitly include pagename.aspx for the Insights to show.
