Tracking when users access a report

Hi all,

On the service there's the option to generate a usage report that provides you with, amongst other things, views by user.

Is there any way to see, extract when exactly a specific user accessed the report? I am talking about the date(s) or, ideally day-time.

 

Many thanks

Hi @AlB 

You can download the audit logs and build Power BI reports with the data. There are various ways to automate this see:

Build Your Own Power BI Audit Log; Usage Metrics Across the Entire Tenant - RADACAD

for a simple method, and 

Set up audit log components - Power Platform | Microsoft Docs

for more powerful options.

Hope this helps

Cool. Thanks very much @Burningsuit 

I'll check it out. Do you know if that user info can be accessed from a dashboard? We'll be generating alerts based on dashboards data and ultimately we want to check whether users accessed the dashboard after receiving an alert.

Thanks

Hi @AlB 

I don't know about other options, but this information is definitely in the audit logs. If you are a Power BI Admin, you could access this information from there.

For example..
