Click Logs

To further the transparency and granularity of your data, we provide you with exportable click log files. These files give you information about each and every click in your system so you can investigate each click your network sees.

Click logs are available as an exportable CSV file. To download your click logs, go to Reports > Click Logs. Then in the date selector, choose a date for which you want click logs. In the table, click the link for a timeframe to export a ZIP file containing the click logs.

Note: For ease of reference, the time displayed in each link is in your network’s time zone. However, the downloaded file shows times in UTC (as many business intelligence systems assume UTC times).
