Most commonly used or frequently accessed document list RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    Does WSS 3.0 have the capability to produce a commonly used or frequently used documents list?  I would like to have either a separate document library containing the most frequently accessed documents from another list or a way to sort by the most accessed documents in a particular list. If anyone thinks there's a way to do this, please respond.

    Thank you!

    UPDATE: Please close this ticket as I'm no longer working at this employer

  • Hi,  create a list in which you can store the document link and number of times accessed the document by adding onclick of the documents in the document library, After this you can sort the list getting the most accessed documents,

  • Hi Anil:


    Forgive my ignorance, but could you please explain adding the "onclick" metric to a SharePoint list?  How does one define this metric?  As a calculated value or something else?  Please explain a little further, thank you!

  • Onclick of the document link in the listveiwwebpart of the document library just add the incremented value to the fields  value by script.

  • Thank you for the advice, however this list will be functioning like the "Recent files" list in Windows.

    My goal was to have a "quick launch" of the most frequently used documents, since the document library in question is quite large.

    I'm not having much luck doing what Anil described.  Has anyone else come across a step-by-step tutorial on this matter?
