Reporting laptop usage

I need to generate a report that will show me how much time users are logged into laptops but I'm not sure where to begin. The most obvious indicator would be the Last Contact time, but I'm looking for more detailed information as to who, when, how long, etc.

Re: Reporting laptop usage

If you own ZAM, you could record Software Usage.
I presume Explore.exe would be a good one to monitor ;>

Re: Reporting laptop usage

We do down ZAM but I never touch it, someone else in our department messes with that. 😉

Why would I monitor Explorer.exe and how does monitoring software show me who is using which notebooks?

Basically I need some documentation.

Re: Reporting laptop usage

I'm not a ZAM Person, but you can see who is using what software for how
long.

The primary reason is so you can determine if they really need software
installed so you could re-allocate it.

You can use it to see if ppl are spending most of the Day in MS-Access
or FreeCell 😆

Explore.exe would be a process that is running anytime someone is logged
into Windows, so that would give you a very good idea on how much the
person is logged into Windows.

I'm not really a ZAM person either, so I would recommend chatting with a
ZAM person to verify my idea.

Re: Reporting laptop usage

I'm not sure if Reporting would do it, but you may be to build some
queries on the "Primary User Calc" Tables.

I have not examined them, but I think they should track some of the
logons there so they can update the Primary User as necessary.
