With most email clients you can request confirmation that an email has been opened (not read, just opened). I was wondering if there was a way to track whether a Microsoft (MS) Word document could be tracked to see who was opening it. Each week I diligently send out my status report. It goes to over 20 email recipients. All members of my team and key management individuals. I could never tell if anyone was reading my status unless they sent me a question directly relating to my status report.
Now there’s a way! www.trackmycv.com.
TrackMyCV is intended for job hunters who want to know if their resumes are being read by people they are sending it to. Best of all, it’s FREE!
How does it work? Well, After registering, they generate a tiny invisible image (1 pixel X 1 pixel) for you
to insert into your MS Word document. Take great care in following the instruction on the site on how to link to this image. Save your document and send it out. Each time you document is opened, that tiny image is referenced. and for each reference, TrackMyCV.com gathers information about where that image is being linked from.
As you can see from my tracking image, my status report was only opened 8 times. Once in Colorado, and 7 times in Orange County, CA. While it won’t tell me who the person is, it does give me their IP address info.
Here’s what you get after an easy sign-up:
