GAT: How to View All Sites Your Users are Browsing


GAT Shield browsing allows admins to
view all sites their users are browsing. Starting at the top, you can click on the
load more data button to look further into the history of your users browsing
activity. These pie charts here show you the visits made to sites, the time spent
on those sites, the number of visits by a user, and the time spent on sites by
users. In this area, we can view what site URLs
were recently visited. The time spent on that site, when the user opened or closed
that site, and which user it was. As an admin you can apply tags to sites to add
a tag we need to click on the URL tagging section. Click on ‘add a tag’. In
this example I could tag youtube.com/ as video and learning the results would
then show on the browsing section. To see those tags in action simply apply a
filter and use the tag ‘search’. In this example I will see if one of my OUs
or visiting sites that are tagged to social. Now I can see the results. The
charts will also represent the new information. I can also export the data
as CSV if I want. You may notice that some sites only displayed our name
rather than the entire URL. This is done by super admins in the URL mapping
section. Here we can add a mapping for example youtube.com/ can be displayed as
YouTube. To get an overall summary of the activity for a period of time, select
browsing summary at the top of the screen in the browsing section. Here you
can select a range for the data. Our scope is currently set on domain. I can
change that to a subdomain if I wish the scope can also be changed to search for
OUs, Groups, Users. And for educational domains, you’ll have an option for
courses which will allow you to select your Google classrooms. In this example,
I’ll look for the browsing activity for my marketing OU for the past 30 days.
Here I can see which users spent the most time on sites and what sites they
spent that time on. You can also export any of these charts as PNG files. That
concludes this GAT Shield how-to. Thanks for watching.
