    Analytics - January 2018 Enhancements

    New Digital Inventory Subject Area

    The Digital Inventory subject area allows you to create reports concerning digital inventory. For more information, see Digital Inventory.

    Anonymization of Alma Analytics Reports

    You can now anonymize fields that contain identifying information of users when creating Alma Analytics reports. Anonymizing this data enables you to make reports for statistics and trends without violating privacy concerns or local privacy-related laws.
