Reports

  • Last updated on

The Reports page provides administrative reports, based on the type and time frame you select. You can either create adhoc reports for a quick glance at user activity, going back a maximum of 30 days, or you can schedule reports to be delivered on a regular basis. Barracuda recommends using scheduled reports because logs only go back 30 days – so if you receive regularly scheduled reports, you will have a history of activity beyond 30 days ago.
