Library Analytics deserves a dedicated space

1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
I use Library Analytics as a big part of my job, and while the current implementation is very powerful I wish it was more (lowercase-a) accessible. Today: Browse to my organization, browse to Libraries (we have a lot of libraries), then find my specific library - all of which takes several seconds, and all of which lives in a modal that can’t be bookmarked for fast return.

I would like to see library overview and analytics live in their own space so that they’re easier to get to, and not so easy to accidentally close. For the people who use them in our jobs, they’re much more than simply attributes in our org settings.

Totally agree. My (large) team uses hundreds of libraries, and we try to rely on Library Analytics daily to improve our design system. It can be quite unstable at that scale, with the modal being super laggy and unresponsive. It’s very painful for us to actually employ the data because of the tool-- it would be great for analytics to live in a dedicated tab with more fully-featured UX so that page load isn’t having to worry about populating a few hundred Teams (large org) in the background/at the same time.

Also, it would be !LIFE CHANGING! if there were a way to export the full data-set for libraries to CSV!

Create a tagging system, allowing the user to tag library files within the org as being part of the dataset/design system. Then export to CSV:

Columns:

  • Total Instances
  • Inserts (at current intervals, or use the tool to customize intervals before export)
  • Detaches (at current intervals, or use the tool to customize intervals before export)
  • Detach Rate
  • Usage
    • Rank
    • % of Instances
    • Insert Survival Rate [Instances are what percentage of Inserts]
