User Activity Tracking and Log

Description

Track user activity & duration on your website with this incredibly powerful, easy-to-use and well supported plugin.

Our plugin is especially useful for tracking users on membership sites, LMS online learning systems or WooCommerce sites. It can track both logged-in and anonymous users.

You can track page visits, duration of the visit, and you can even setup event triggers too (ie. click of a button, PDF download, mailto links and more).

Our plugin will accurately track time spent on specific pages which is very useful when you’d like to monitor user’s reading time, video watching time, tracking time in LMS online learning system, or how long users look at your e-commerce product pages before purchasing.

The plugin stores no cookies on users’ computers and therefore requires no cookie opt-in from users (unlike Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager).

Testimonials

★★★★★

“Tried many, but this one had just what I wanted. I like this plugins feature set, minimal but exactly what I need to see. Helps me to send offers on a WooCommerce digital content site when I notice users are looking at a particular product often, but not purchasing. A little nudge helps and this plugin puts that info in a place I can easily see.” – Ryan

★★★★★

“Simple to install & performs well. The reporting is clear and very useful!” – hannahfinch

“Very useful plugin!! I was looking for something to track users on our website. This plugin is exactly what I needed. You can track activity and users. You can see who visited which pages, and the referring page they came from. The premium version gives you even more useful features like tracking only users who are logged in, additional view options, and so on. Excellent plugin, highly recommended!!” – msiciliano

Great plugin, thoughtfully designed. The only thing I’d add would be the ability to search by visitor city.
