View your Activity Log and Summary

Learn how to get an overview of your imported and exported products and applied rule boxes using the Activity feature in Productsup.

Introduction

With the Activity feature, you can keep track of all your applied rule boxes and view the number of monthly maintained and exported products.

Locate the Activity page

To access the Activity page:

  • Go to Activity from your account's, project's, or site's main menu.

  • If you access the Activity page from the account level, you can see two (2) tabs:

    1. The Activity Log tab displays all activities related to rule boxes applied to your data.

    2. The Activity Summary tab shows the number of monthly maintained and exported products for an account.

  • If you access the Activity page from the project or site level, you can see only the Activity Summary tab with the number of monthly maintained and exported products for each site in each project.

Activity Log

Activity Log displays all events connected with adding, editing, pausing, or deleting a rule box in Data View or Dataflow.

Your Activity Log displays a table containing the following information:

  • Activity - The name of the logged event.

  • Event type - The type of activities performed with rule boxes, such as Add , Edit, and Delete. The current version doesn't show the scheduling of rule boxes and changes by the Dataflow versions.

  • Location - The project and site of the event.

  • Timestamp - The time when the event occurred based on the timezone selected in your profile. See Set up user profile time zone.

  • User - The name and email of the user who performed the activity.

    Activity Log records

To find and view a rule box activity:

  1. Search for an activity by keyword, for example, Add, or date.

Activity Summary

Your Activity Summary displays two (2) KPIs:

  • Maintained Products - The average monthly number of imported products per site, project, or account, depending on from which level you access the page. The platform calculates the average number of products in the Import and Intermediate stage and displays the higher of the two numbers. See a calculation example in the following table.

  • Exported Products - The total monthly number of exported products per site, project, or account, depending on from which level you access the page.

The Activity Summary tab shows you the maintained and exported products for a selected month per project when you are at the account level. But if you access the Activity Summary tab from the project level, you can see the maintained and exported products per each site within this project. And if you access it from the site level, the Activity Summary tab displays the maintained and exported products only for the current site.

Maintained and Exported products

To view your import and export activities for a certain month, choose the month from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner.

Select a month for activity summary

Example of maintained products calculation:

In the following table, you can see that the platform triggered run four times during the month and imported 7,525 products on average (30,100 divided by 4). At the same time, the platform passed 10,000 products on average to the Intermediate stage (20,000 divided by 2). Since the Intermediate average is higher than the Import average, the Activity Summary displays 10,000 as the number of Maintained Products for that month.

Note

The Activity Summary data might differ from your invoice if you moved a site from your testing or sandbox project to a live project. For example, in January, the sandbox site had 1,000 maintained products. You moved this project to live in February. Now, if you select January to review Activity Summary for January, you see 1,000 maintained products under the live project, even though in that month, they belonged to a sandbox project.

Download Activity Summary

You can download the Activity Summary data as a CSV file for one of the past 12 months as follows:
