Implementing Google Analytics


Using a combination of two core Claromentis applications, Analytics and Audit Logging, Administrators can monitor user activity and understand global trends.

The Analytics application enables organizations to understand, visualize and interpret data associated with intranet usage.

The Audit Logging application allows Administrators to track individual user activity and comes in useful when troubleshooting problems.

For more information, please refer to the Tracking User Activity Guide.
