Signority’s security reports show you your team’s login activities. As an administrator, this can be used to monitor your team and detect any unusual login activities. The report includes all login and logout activities for your users, as well as any password and 2FA changes made to each account.

Signority automatically generates a report at the end of every month, which will be titled “Monthly Report – Security Report -“MONTH YEAR” which can be found on their respective pages. Monthly reports not covering everything you want out of a report? Run a customized report with specific dates that better fit your needs.

Accessing your security reports can be done using the left sidebar menu.  On the bottom of this menu you will see an icon labeled Reports. From the User Menu, click on Reports, and then click on Security Report in the menu that appears as shown below.

When the Security Report page opens, you will see a window similar to the one below. On this page, you will have access to your monthly reports as well as any previous security reports you have run.

How to Run a Security Report

  1. Select the timeframe you wish the report to cover. You can either use one of Signority’s default timelines (3) or specify a custom timeframe (4) you require. 
  2. [Optional] Select a specific user and event type using the User (1) and Event Type (2) dropdowns.
  3. Click Run (5) to have the report generated.
  4. Your report will be generated and will be listed under Saved Reports (6) and an email will be sent to you once the report is ready for you to view.
  5. Once you receive the email, go back to the Security Report page to find your report under Saved Reports.
  6. Under Saved Reports (6) you can then click on the report to view it.
  7. Export the report as a CSV file using the “Download” button.

Note: Reports are run each night and will be ready by 8:00 am EST time the next morning. Otherwise, your report may take up to an extra 24 hours.
