I’m a clerk in my unit and another member asked me if the Church keeps record of how often someone goes to the temple. I replied that I didn’t think so but I’d double check. She was just wondering if she could see what temples she’s been to and when.

All I have is a semi-educated guess, but (personally) I highly doubt it. The semi-educated part of the guess comes from a second-hand anecdote from an earlier stake I lived in. At stake conference, the stake leaders informed the visiting authority of the counts of temple visits by stake members during the previous month(s). The visiting authority asked how the stake leaders got those numbers. The stake leaders replied that they collected the numbers on either priesthood meeting or Relief Society rolls or had the home/visiting teachers or quorum/RS leaders ask the members. Reportedly, the visiting authority told the stake leaders to repent and not do it again.
It's possible it's being tracked for statistical purposes, but it's not information accessible to the local units. Even if it was being tracked now, I doubt if it was tracked in the era before barcoded temple recommends. (Or, at least the gap period between magstripe and barcodes.)
There's no way for a member to see their history of temple attendance using the Church's systems.
