I am using Evoq Content 7.01.01 (this was originally DNN Professional that I had purchased, though I don't know if that applies anymore).  I need a way to keep track of what subscribers are signing in.  I see that this can be done in the event viewer, it appears that event viewer can only be used as an administrator, and I would like a way for a subscriber to view this.  Either that, or have an administrator that only has access to the event viewer, and won't have editing capabilities, or other administrative rights - just access to the event viewer only.

I would rather not use a module for this, but if anyone knows of a module to do this or think I may have more luck with finding a module, let me know and I will move it to the modules forum, if moving it is possible.

Thank you,

Gina

There are a few options I can think ok... but what's your actual goal here? Is this for just reporting? Is it to monitor current activity? Do you need to know exactly who is online at any minute? Will the results be public, or just for administrators/staff?

Actual goal is to track "who is and isn't reviewing a certain page".  As far as who isn't reviewing it, they will just have to refer to the list of who is using it, and use process of elimination to figure out those that aren't - that's good enough for me.  So it would be both reporting and the ability to monitor current activity, and yes, would need to know who signed in.  I don't need to know how long they are signed in, what is in the event viewer is fine.  So a timestamp, as in the event viewer, is sufficient.

This page can't be public.  I would like to give access to one subscriber, but I don't want this subscriber to have full admin rights, so they can't be an administrator.  Or can they be?  Can they be an administrator that only has access to the event viewer only?  No editing capabilities or anything else in the administrative menu?

Hello,

Well... There are some user tracking modules, but most focus on better integration with Google/Bing analytics. There is some old "users online" functionality, as well as a module that does that, but that stuff hasn't been updated in a while and may not really work for this anyway.

I think you'll also find some trouble using the Event Viewer - generally, entries delete out of there after some period of time.

If you're comfortable doing it, you could make a small module that logs page views by user on a page. You could do that using the module creator - or even XMod - pretty easily. Sorry, I don't know of any existing modules that do this, even though I feel like there must be one out there...
