Web Filter Report
A web filter report is a history of all web browsing on a device with a line-by-line record of information including the last accessed, URL, Class, and web filter categories to name a few.
The Web filter Reports contains information pertaining to students and devices, including the following:
- Last Accessed date - The date with which the device last accessed the Activity.
- Count - Count of the times the devices have accessed this URL
- Activity - URL visited or Domain accessed
- Profile - Profile that was active at the time of the entry
- Class - The name of the class
- Student - The name of the student
- Device - The Device of the Student
- Status of the URL - allowed or blocked depending on the active profile settings
Please Note: To see the history of a particular class, make sure to select that class in the filter option.
You can extract this information from the dashboard using two methods:
- You can pull the default Last Access 24 hours ago report.
