This post will show you how GAT+ can generate a report of all email activity for each user.
The report can be scheduled daily, weekly or monthly and will be generated in the form of a spreadsheet that can be sorted by the desired column.
The report will cover both internal and external emails.
To start building this scheduled report the Admin should go to:
GAT+ then navigate Emails audit
- Select the ‘User statistics’
- Choose Type (Stats by Date range and Users)
- Time period – Date From and Date to
- and Group/OU for the report to run against.
From there, select the ‘Scheduled’ button. It will open extra fields to be filled, such as “Enabled” to enable the report, then choose the ‘Occurrence’ in this case we select daily (Every day -After midnight), then ‘Apply & Schedule.
For the daily report, select as a schedule ‘Every day – after midnight’ or choose weekly, monthly or a custom Cron period.
You may also add additional email recipients for the report.
The Admin will be emailed a link of the spreadsheet
The generated spreadsheet will display Statistics of all emails sent and received by members of the searched group/OU, stats for how many emails they have sent and received from their account whether it was sent from Email or Group they use.
Admin can then sort the Spreadsheet to display by number of emails sent and received, by each individual user.
A new spreadsheet will be created every day, cover the previous day..
An example of the spreadsheet output looks like this.
Freeze row 1 and then select any column of interest, finally sort the sheet based on that column in the Z to an order to bring the largest numbers to the top.
There is also another way to find Top Email sender and receivers.
In Email audit – select ‘Email Content search’, (this is real time Gmail search).
In this example we are searching for all emails in our domain “/” including sub OUs.
We search for emails ‘newer_than:2d’ – Admin can use any other search parameter (examples from the same line ‘small arrow on the right-hand side’)
Select ‘Search emails’ this will start a search and once the result is displayed simply click on “Sender/Receiver” option from top bar.
Here an Admin can sort each of the fields to see top Internal and External Email Senders and Receivers on your domain. Each of the tables can be exported into a spreadsheet.
This is very useful if for example your managers want a list of all emails sent and received by your users in certain period of time. To see who received and sent what amount of emails.
