Monitor usage & security with reports

Available reports and log events depend on your Google Workspace or Cloud Identity edition

As an administrator, you can view reports and log events in the Google Admin console to review activity in your organization. For example, you can:

  • Examine potential security risks
  • Analyze your team's carbon footprint and use of collaboration
  • Diagnose configuration problems
  • Track who signs in and when
  • Analyze administrator activity
  • Understand how users create and share content

You can view domain-level data alongside granular, user-level details through graphs and tables.
