I'd like to know further possibilities for tracking PDF usage beyond downloads. As you can see in this article, it is possible to do so on Google Analytics https://www.sixthcitymarketing.com/2018/01/26/track-pdfs-in-google-analytics/
Is this available in Adobe Analytics too?
Adobe published a new SDK that allows to track the usage of pdf's embeded on the website: https://medium.com/adobetech/pdf-analytics-get-insights-on-embedded-pdfs-on-your-website-44e6a314fb1...
be aware that this does not allow to track the usage of the pdf's within eg. Adobe Acrobat Reader. But I think talking with web devs to add this in-page reader might (and event tracking) opens new data about the usage pf those docs.
I suggest to check out https://www.adobe.io/apis/documentcloud/dcsdk/pdf-embed.html you can gain usage insights via Activity map while changing the player
I think this is not possible too
I don't think it is possible to track the usage of PDF after download - neither with Google Analytics or Adobe Analytics!
