The filefield_tracker module allows you to track the download of private filefields.
This module depends on the Filefield module and requires the private download method to be set.


  • Provides new CCK field formatter that lists filefield files with a trackable link
  • Provides global reporting for privileged users on downloaded files (filename - node - user - download time)
  • Provides per node reporting tab for privileged users on downloaded files belonging to that node (filename - user - download time)
  • Exclude roles from tracking
  • Views support
