Your Logtivity Charts Now Have Advanced Date Ranges

Logtivity is a WordPress activity log with a big difference. Not only can you track all the activity on your site, but with Logtivity you can also turn that information into beautiful and useful charts.

Displaying your data in charts gives you a helpful and organized overview of your site’s key metrics. You can use these charts to show logins, purchases, subscriptions, cancellations, downloads, or any other key events. If it happens on your WordPress site, Logtivity can turn it into a bar chart or a line chart.

We’re happy to say you can now customise the date range for charts. Your charts are updated with advanced date ranges, so you can zoom in to view any time period.

This video shows the new date ranges in action:


How the new charts work

When we first started building these charts, we had to migrate all the Logtivity data into a new format. The logs are now stored in an hourly format. This makes it possible for us to display your data in almost any imaginable date range.

The charts are built using Chart.js, which is a very popular, community-run, open source project. My guess is that you’ve seen examples of Charts.js many times before, because thousand of sites use it for a wide variety of charts and graphs.

We pair Charts.js with an awesome date range filter library called Date Range Picker that gives us the super flexible filtering options. The Date Ranger Picker is a really powerful way to show two pop-up calendars for the start and end of the date range. You can select dates, times, and also predefined ranges such as “Yesterday”, or “Last 30 Days”.


An example of the new charts

Let me show you an example of how this works with some real charts. In this example, I’ve created a chart showing how often a user in the “Subscriber” role logged in to our site.

This chart below shows the hourly logins for Subscribers on one day, October 13. Each bar represents the logins for one hour.

Here’s the same chart, but now expanded to cover a whole week, October 1 to October 7. Each bar represents the total logins on a single day.

Next, we’ll zoom out again and look at the logins over a whole month. This chart below shows Subscriber logins from September 1 to October 1. Again, each bar represents a single day.

For our final chart in this example, we’ll zoom out again. This image below shows the Subcriber logins across three months: July, August, and September. Each bar represents a single month.

It’s worth noting that these charts are available as both bar charts and line charts. This image below shows a line chart of all user logins over a single month:
