Audit Logs

Zoho Analytics allows you to track the activity of all users -- Administrators, Shared Users and Public Users -- in your account, through Audit Logs.

You can track the following information through the Audit Logs.

  • Access Logs - This enables you to monitor access of all the views present in your account, by users (including public users).
  • Activity Logs - This enables you to monitor the activities performed in your account by users.

When you set up Audit Logs, a workspace named Zoho Analytics Audits  will automatically be created in your account. Rows added in this workspace will not be counted in your account usage & subscription pricing.

Access Logs
