The plugin uses the activity log to create detailed activity reports that you can use to gain detailed insights into your website and user activities. You will have fully configurable criteria that you can use to create unlimited reports. The plugin can generate reports based on a daily, weekly, quarterly, and monthly basis. For your ease, these reports are shared instantly in your inbox.
