System Activity - Which users accessed specific dashboards and clicked "Run" ?

Knowledge Drop

Last tested: Oct 19, 2020

We can use the "history" explore to determine who has accessed a dashboard. We can also use a custom measure to count the number of times a dashboard was run by a particular user.

In the "history" explore, select the following fields:

  • Dashboard Title
  • User Name
  • Dashboard ID
  • History Count
  • History Approximate Web Usage in Minutes

Add these filters:

  • Dashboard ID is equal to {insert dashboard ID}
  • Dashboard Title is equal to {insert dashboard title}

Create a custom measure for "Dashboard Run Count":

  • Field to measure: "Dashboard Session" in the History view
  • Measure type: Count Distinct
