A log can be thought of as a list of information, some might call it a table. Each line or record in the log contains a timestamp plus one or more fields that holds information about activity at that instant. Filters selectively reduce or focus the information shown in the report.

To generate a log report, select any combination of group, student, date, activity and actions, then click the "Get these logs" button.

You can see what pages the student accessed, the time and date they accessed it, the IP address they came from, and their actions (view, add, update, delete).

You can choose to display the logs on a page or download them in text, ODS or Excel format.

Note: The log report page contains active links enabling you to access a student's profile page or a particular page that the student was viewing. The IP address link provides an estimate of the student's location.
