What does the Activity summary display?

In the Statistics tool, events generated by actions taken in other tools (e.g., posting a new announcement, opening a file in Resources, etc.) are considered activities.

Activity displays the events recorded for tools specified in the Statistics Preferences.  By default, these tools include Resources and Site Settings.  For steps to gather statistics from additional tools, see How do I modify preferences in the Statistics tool?

For information on other Statistics summary reports, see How do I view summary reports in the Statistics tool?

Go to Statistics.

Select the Statistics tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

View Activity overview.

The following information is displayed for Activity:

  1. Events: Total number of events from all selected tools.
  2. Most active tool: The tool that generated the most events.
  3. Most active user: The user ID (UVA computing ID or non-UVA email address) of the individual who generated the most events.

Note: You can select one of the items above to go to a page with additional details (e.g., selecting Events will display a list of events that occurred in the selected tools, such as adding, opening, or deleting files/content in Resources).
