  • How to Generate a Status Report—Use the status report to review the current status of all active users and all MED-V workspaces of each user based on a defined period of time. This includes viewing computers that are currently connected to the server or, if they are not currently connected, the date and time they were last connected to the server, the status of each computer, and other relevant information.

  • How to Generate an Activity Log Report—Use this report to review events that originated from a specific host or user in a defined date range.
