Enable document download tracking

I use the page redirect facility to link urls to documents, but Hubspot Analytics does not enable me to track the number of page views (and therefore the number of downloads).

I would like a toggle box added alongside the url redirect field allowing me to choose whether or not to track activity.

        I also need to be able to track file downloads. Both Pardot & Marketo let you create lists off of prospects who have viewed a file (clicked the link created when you upload it).

        We upload competitive sales sheets as PDF's to hubspot so our sales team can email them to individual prospects. I do not want prospects to have to go to a landing page to download it, it needs to just open & still be tracked.

        Even if I use a landing page, there is no way for me to see show has clicked the link. I can only know if they made it to the page, not if they actually downloaded the PDF.

        My specific request is to enable document download tracking without having to do some workaround, but I will take this if it is the closest I can get.

        I think that this is a good suggestion. For those that want to put @dmscott's philosophy of distributing some premium content for free to encourage mass download/sharing, having the ability to track PDF or document downloads is helpful.

        To that end, I am sure something similar could be arranged similarly to how Google Analytics can create Virtual Pageviews as outlined here: http://www.google.com/support/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=55529
