How to monitor PBI Pro license usage?

Hey everyone,

We have Pro licenses and a Premium server.  Our issue is that we have 50 Pro licenses and have used 49. 

What i am asking is there any metrics on how people use the Pro licenses? I would like to see last time a report was published and how many.  Then I could email or take away the Pro license of those who have never used them.  Easier to show stats and ask instead of just emailing them.

I have access to Global Admin and know the people with more access too if necessary.  I am able to see who has them not how they are using it.

Thanks!

Use Power BI Audit logs (Track user activities in Power BI - Power BI | Microsoft Docs), it conatains 90 days of data, then select user who have not performed any Power Pro activity (i.e. Publish Report, edit report, create/edit dataflow) in past 90 days and check if you can take back Power BI Pro from them.

And as @arvindsingh802  said you can then search for users who have accessed reports, dashboards etc.
