Logtivity is a new service that helps you understand exactly what’s happening on your WordPress site.
Logtivity tracks the user activity on your site. Then you can turn that activity data into beautiful charts. You can also use the data to send notifications to your email or Slack. Plus, you can easily search and export the data.
If you have customers on your WordPress site, you’ll find Logtivity to be invaluable.
To get started, simply install the Logtivity plugin and then connect your site to Logtivty.io. You’ll immediately start to see the results. This image below shows the activity for one user. You can see everything this user has done from installing plugins and updating posts, to changing blocks and plugin settings.
Yes, Logtivity will keep a record of the activity on your website. However, that’s just where the magic begins. You can then use your data in Logtivity and do three additional things:
- Create beautiful charts
- Send alert notifications
- Export reports
Here’s an introduction to those three options, starting with charts.
#1. Charts in Logtivity
This image below gives an idea of what’s possible with Logtivity. First, I searched my site’s data for login information and then clicked the “Convert to Report” button. Logtivity did the rest. With a couple of mouse clicks, I’ve created a bar chart showing daily user logins.
You can also use Logtivity to track and chart the events that are important to your site. One Logtivity customer sells access to file downloads inside the Download Monitor plugin. In the image below, you see his line graph chart of daily file downloads.
This customer has a whole dashboard full of charts in Logtivity, so he can quickly see the number of logins, downloads, free trials and much more. This next image shows another chart, this time with details of all the new subscriptions created on the site. Click here to see more about charts.
#2. Alerts in Logtivity
Once your site is connected to Logtivity, you can set up unlimited alerts for any activity you want to know about as soon as it happens. You can send the alerts to your inbox or Slack channel.
One Logtivity customer employs various writers, so they’ve set up a series of Slack alerts that show when the writers log in. You can use this as a security alert, letting you know every time someone in the Administrator role logs in. This next image shows how the alerts appear in Slack.
Another customer sends themselves an email every time a plugin or theme is updated. They only run updates on Monday, but realized that some plugins will run their own auto-updates. Logtivity allows them to be constantly aware of all site changes. A third customer sends themselves an alert every time there have been no plugin updates in the last week! They want to make sure they don’t forget to run updates.
eCommerce sites can use Logtivity for convenient notifications and set up alerts for all new, changed, and canceled subscriptions. Click here to see more about alerts.
#3. Export Reports in Logtivity
Logtivity was started because one of our clients had reporting problems due to the amount of data collected on their site. The client was using a plugin that stored data in the WordPress database. Whenever we tried to export large amounts of logs, the site would show 502 errors. We needed to have the information stored separately. Being a dedicated service, Logtivity can optimize for things such as exporting 100,000 logs. Click here to see more about exports.
