You can track conversation and discussion activity in your organization using the Google Chat audit log. For example, you can see when a user starts a direct message or creates a room.
Before you begin
If you have history turned off, you won't see data for users who send direct messages. To check your settings, see Turn history on or off.
Note: Occasionally some Chat activity isn't logged as expected. We're working to resolve this issue and will update this article when full logging is restored.
From the Admin console Home page, go to Reports.
- On the left under Audit, click Hangouts Chat.
(Optional) To customize what you review, on the right, click Manage columns , select the columns that you want to see or hide, and click Save.
