To confirm your reporting agents, ensure you have
Admin access, then go to Account > Storage on your left-side navigation menu.
There you will be able to see all users with agents installed.
If you do not see any agents listed, reference this guide to see the
different methods to install agents to your user computers.
The agents you have installed will be listed here. You will see the Last Log Record
indicating when those users were last logged in as well as the Logon Domain indicating
which user. There may be some other information populated on this page as well depending
on your ActivTrak plan and how long your agents have been collecting data.
Configure Names & Aliases
To make your ActivTrak reports and dashboards easier
to understand and accurately report user information across multiple devices and logins,
you’ll need to configure your user and computer names.
Change the viewable name of a computer or user with an alias. When the agent is installed
on a computer, it shows the registered name of the computer on all associated computer
data. You can also use aliases to change the names of users in reports and combine
variations of user names into a single alias.
To do this, select Settings > User Aliases and Settings > Computer Aliases.
This article will show you how to create user and computer names with
aliases to make your users easier to identify in your dashboards and reports.
Create User Groups
Groups allow you to group workstations together and
segment data any way you would like. Each workstation in a group can still be accessed
and viewed individually, but groups allow you to aggregate, segment and analyze specific
clusters of data together.
To create groups, select Settings > Groups on the navigation pane, you can add a
new group, or add new members to an existing group.
Now it’s time to really make ActivTrak your own.
Classifying Productivity helps administrators get a better sense of how productive their
users are and makes dashboards and reports more robust and meaningful.
ActivTrak's Intelligent Auto Classification feature will automatically classify most of
the websites and applications that the majority of customers use with a productivity
label and a category making it easy for you to get started. You can also customize
labels to suit your needs.
Classifying activities is easy and can be done via the Activity Classification page. Go
to Settings > Classification on the navigation menu.
