I have several published articles under a Knowledge Base in D365 Customer Service. I'm using a quite OOB solution for them and I'm aware that each article has a column "Views" that is intended to shown the number of times articles are viewed.
My problem is that column only counts the number of times articles are viewed from a related entity (such as Cases), and not the times articles are viewed when users access it directly from the Knowledge Base entity.
Do you know what I can do in order to have Dynamics counting not only the views made from related entities but also the views made directly in the KB? I guess I may be missing some parameter or something like that...
Thanks and regards!
As I know, this views count only calculate the counts that users view this article outside without open this article record. Such as when we view this article from case knowledge base search, portal, the count will upgrade.
This count is based on the knowledge articl View entity which is by design.
I suggest that you could raise an idea to Microsoft Product Team for this feature.
Hope it helps.
Hi Leo Zhang. Thanks for your answer. I'll log this as an idea if noone else replies!
One workaround is as follows:
1. You can add a new field(type: whole number) to knowledge base article
3. You can use addition of OOB field and the new field to calculate the total views for your requirement.
Thanks for the tip. We're trying it and I'll write here about the result!
Did it work for you?
Greetings of the day!
