[Visitor Log] Show duration of visit on each page

Now we have something like this on Visitor Log:

2 Actions - 15 min 30s

  1. Example page
    http://www.example.com/
  2. About - Example page
    http://www.example.com/about
  3. Contact - Example page
    http://www.example.com/contact

For now we can see here only overall duration of that visit, but each

  • element from the above have title="" attribute with information about time of entering that particular page, for example:
    Tue 25 Oct 23:10:15 - http://www.example.com/

    It would be cool, if duration of visit on each page would be displayed in Visitor next to each page, if have any successor (we will have no information about visit on the last page), so previous visitor log would look like this:

    1. Example page (3m 15s)
      http://www.example.com/
    2. About - Example page (11m 45s)
      http://www.example.com/about
    3. Contact - Example page
      http://www.example.com/contact

    And, thanks a lot for doing Piwik! :slight_smile:

    Firstly I was using BBClone for web stats and it worked pretty cool, here you have for example BBClone detiled stats for my website: http://www.estender.net/bbclone/show_detailed.php?lng=en . But I noticed that BBClone is no longer maintained, and then I’ve found Piwik :slight_smile: I’m using it on my another site for about half year, I really like Visitor Log feature!

    That site is in PHP, but now I’m Ruby developer and I’m rewriting that site to Ruby, so I was looking for some stats app written in Ruby, but as I was looking for any, there is no one worth attention. Maybe all developers likes Google Analytics :slight_smile: I’m using Google Analytics on my another project, but I like Piwik much more :slight_smile: It is much simplier in use, and Google Analytics hasn’t detailed stats like Piwik’s Visitor Log!

    The only fun feature that Google Analytics has, and Piwik has not, is map, where we can check not only how many visitors are from a particular country, but even from a particular region of a country! (in Germany lands, in Poland voivodeships, in USA states and bigger cities), but I’m aware that adding such as feature to Piwik would cost huge amount of work and it is not so much necessary, eventually only feature to check amount of visits from each part of a particular country would be enough, without extended map.

    And, have you though about moving piwik to git repository as official repo? :slight_smile: Or maybe to migrate Piwik to Ruby? :slight_smile:

    cheers from Poland!

    wow, so great!

    thanks for Piwik!

    It’s such a disappointment to not have this basic feature. I just installed Piwik last night and have been pleased with everything I’ve discovered with it thus far except for this one simple, yet very useful, metric. Please developers: If you can’t be bothered to have it show the duration spent on page, AT LEAST have it show a timestamp when the page was visited! C’mon!

    yea! i am leaving google analatics and starting this for duration of visitors! nice

    We need YOUR help! We are running a crowd funding campaign to raise funds to implement the detailed Visitors Maps of Countries, Regions and Cities (for all countries)!

    These maps will be beautiful, usable, and built using open standards SVG+JS. They will show detailed visitor count, conversion rates, by Country but also (New!) by city and region.

    Piwik needs you

    The time spent by a visitor on a page has been in Piwik since version 1.8.2 (last fall, IIRC).

    Whether on the “Visitor Log” page or in the “Visitor in Real-Time” dashboard widget, the time is available. Yes, you have to hover over an icon (in the widget) or a link (on the page) to see the time but it’s there, along with the timestamp.

    But yes, I can understand that having the time attached to each page title in the Visitor Log would be great.
