Requirement: See who has viewed a document in SharePoint Online.
How to see who viewed a document in SharePoint?
Can we see who has viewed a file in SharePoint or OneDrive? Yes! We can track who has viewed a file in SharePoint Online with this nifty feature, “SharePoint Viewers”. To see who has viewed a document in SharePoint, do the following:
- Go to Site Settings >> Click on “Manage Site Features” under Site Actions
- Activate the “SharePoint Viewers” feature.
Wait for a few minutes and when hovering over a document, You’ll see the names of the people who have viewed a document!
Without this feature active, SharePoint just gives you how many people have viewed a document (without telling who has viewed it!).
