Logging activities - example

Kentico EMS required

Features described on this page require the Kentico EMS license.

The following example demonstrates how the system logs activities for anonymous visitors and registered users. You can try out the example on the sample Dancing Goat site.

  1. Visit the live website as an anonymous visitor (without signing in) and perform some actions, for example, view the Home page and search for Colombian coffee.
  2. Sign in to Kentico as an administrator.
  3. Open the Contact management application on the Contacts tab.
    • The system has created an anonymous visitor.
  4. Manage() the new anonymous visitor and switch to the Activitiestab.
    • You can see that the system logged the Page visit and Internal search activities.Anonymous activities
  5. Sign out of Kentico to view the live site as an anonymous visitor again.
  6. On the live site, register as a new user, for example, Peter Chelmsford.
  7. View the Home page and search for Colombian coffee again.

If you view the list of contacts again, you can see that the system has renamed the original anonymous visitor according to the entered registration data. Manage () the contact and open the Activities tab to view the updated activity log for the new user.
