I am keen to download some usage metrics from my shiny apps to get a feel for how many people are using them. I see that there may be options to use google analytics, but i am not familiar with Java script.
I have tried to extract metrics using rsconnect:: as explained here https://docs.rstudio.com/shinyapps.io/metrics.html
My main issue (sorry if im being stupid here)...is that i simply don't understand what any of these metrics mean, or how to interpret the data I receive.
For example "connect_count" returns a column of 1/0s and a timestamp. But what does this mean? and how do i interpret the timestamp?
Any help would be really appreciated. Apologies again if this is a stupid question or if its covered elsewhere.
