What Data is Being Reported

Print Media is defined as both PDFs available for download, and PDFs available for personalization and download. The data in this report is generated from partner and end user interaction. The columns that indicate partner interest are Partners and Activations. The columns that indicate end-user interest are Downloads and Unique Downloads. The remaining columns, Last Viewed, and Activation Date provide information on when the interest occurred.
