Logs and analytics


As researchers work with your organization's datasets, administrators will be able to view aggregate analytics as well as detailed and searchable logs. This allows you to answer some of the most important questions of a data administrator — who is doing what, when, in which context, on which datasets.


The Analytics tab of the administrator panel allows you to track the aggregate utilization of your organization's datasets. You can view this information in as a bar chart or see trends over time by on the Timeline tab. Use the dropdown menus on the top left and bottom to adjust your metrics.

View aggregate analytics for your datasets on the "Analytics" tab


The Logs section of the administrator panel provides a detailed history of all interactions with your organization and its data. Using the Jump to button, you can navigate to any particular time in the logs, and can also filter logs similarly to other lists in the administrator panel.
