The Account totals report provides access to total accumulated listening sessions for content.

Account totals report overview

Using the report

Where the analytics dashboard provides an in-depth breakdown of content access patterns for selected periods of time, the Account totals report provides the total listens over all-time for channels, episodes and streams. This provides a view on what was the most popular content over all time and a reporting function that is not limited to a specific time period.

This report can be access via the admin panel on the provider page:

How "Lifetime sessions" are update

The counters displayed in this report for "Lifetime sessions" are updated continually by our platform as valid listening sessions are tracked by our analytics backend.

Only valid sessions (minimum 1 minute listening and other analytics rules applied) will increment this counter.

When is the data updated?

These counters are not updated in real-time. They are incremented by our analytics processing backend, which may occassionally lag may behind real-time.

The value of these counters may also exceed what is visible in the analytics dashboard as analytics reports are frequently cache for up to an hour. Analytics reports will eventually catch up to the session counter value displayed.

Is this the same as the "Listen" label on web pages

Publishers can see the number of "Listens" for each object when logged into our platform as admins. This is the same as the "Lifetime sessions" counter displayed in the Access totals report.

Listen count on object

This provides an easy way to find out the total session count for a specific episode, stream or channel.

Notice for older content

For content published prior to 1 September 2021, this counter have been incremented by our old analytics platform. We have adjusted the counter values older than this date to be more in line with the new analytics measurements, but this is only an approximate adjustment. Unfortunately there is no way to be more accurate, but this should help establish a fair baseline when comparing older and newer content on their lifestime session counter.
