Activity Logs, Alert Notifications, User Activity Tracking from Logtivity


When you set up Logtivity to monitor your clients’ sites, you can relax. We track everything that happens on the sites you maintain, and Logtivity also sends you alerts for important events!

Logtivity is a centralized platform for activity logs and alerts. You can install Logtivity’s plugin and then user our service to keep a close eye on everything that happens on your clients’ sites.

Your clients never have to know that you’re using Logtivity. You can either show a white label version of the activity logs, or you can hide Logtivity entirely.

Activity Logs and Alerts for WordPress Agencies

Logtivity provides the best activity logs for WordPress agencies. You can record all the user activity on your clients’ sites. Then you can use the activity log data to send notifications to email or Slack. Plus, you can easily search and export the information. And you can turn the activity log data into beautiful, useful charts.

If you have customers on your clients’ WordPress site, you’ll find Logtivity to be invaluable. Because Logtivity records all the important activity, you can see real customer journeys across the WordPress sites. This can be incredibly helpful for customer support: the activity log will show exactly what a user has done on your site.

To get started, simply install the Logtivity plugin and then connect your site to Logtivity. You’ll immediately start to see the results.

Logtivity is a SaaS service
You will need to create a Logtivity account to store your activity logs and create alerts. Click here to get started with Logtivity!

Yes, Logtivity will keep a record of the activity on your clients’ websites. However, that’s just where the magic begins. You can then use the data in Logtivity and do three additional things:

  • Send alert notifications to Slack and email.
  • Easily export activity log reports to CSV files, no matter how many logs you have.
  • Create beautiful activity log charts to visualize the data.

Here’s an introduction to those three options, showing why Logtivity is the best activity log plugin for WordPress agencies:

Send Email and Slack alerts for user activity

Once your sites are connected to Logtivity, you can set up unlimited alerts for any activity you want to know about as soon as it happens. You can send the alerts to your email inbox or Slack channels.

One Logtivity customer is an agency that employs various writers. So they’ve set up a series of Slack alerts that show when the writers log in. You can use this as a security alert, letting you know every time someone in the Author role logs in.

Another agency customer sends themselves an email every time a plugin or theme is updated. They only run WordPress updates on Monday, but realized that some plugins will run their own auto-updates. Logtivity allows them to be constantly aware of all site changes.

Another WordPress agency sends themselves an alert every time a user is added to any of their 100+ sites! They manage a network of portfolio sites that should never have new users. It’s important to them to instantly get an alert if a new user is ever created.

eCommerce sites can use Logtivity for convenient notifications and set up alerts for all new, changed, and canceled subscriptions.

Export user activity logs to CSV

Logtivity was started because one of our clients had reporting problems due to the amount of data collected on their site. The client was using a plugin that stored data in the WordPress database. Whenever we tried to export large amounts of logs, the site would show 502 errors. We needed to have the information stored separately. Being a dedicated service, Logtivity can optimize for things such as exporting very large numbers of activity logs.

Create beautiful charts from your activity log

The banner on this plugin page shows you what’s possible with Logtivity charts. First, I searched my site’s data for file downloads and then clicked the “Convert to Report” button. Logtivity did the rest. With a couple of mouse clicks, I’ve created a chart showing all the daily file downloads.

Logtivity customers can build a whole dashboard full of charts, so you can quickly see the number of logins, downloads, payments and anything else that’s important to you.

What user activities does Logtivity record?

Logtivity records all core WordPress actions. In addition to support for the WordPress core, Logtivity records events for many plugins and themes.

Activity logs for WordPress user logins

It’s important to have an activity log on your WordPress site. You need user tracking because you need to know many people are visiting, making purchases, and logging in to your site. Yes, you can track visitors with Google Analytics, and you can track purchases with your payment gateway, but it’s harder to track WordPress-specific information such as log ins. Using Logtivity, you can get an overview of who is logging in to your site, and how many people are logging in every day.

If Logtivity is active on your site, you can go to the “Logs” screen and search for all the “User Logged in” events. You can use the search boxes to drill down for more specific user tracking information. For example, you can use the “Context” box to search for a particular user role. You can use this to search for all “Administrator” logins or all “Editor” logins.

You can also use the search option as a security log and look for nefarious patterns in the audit logs. For example, you can search by IP address to see if one person is using multiple logins. Or you can search by username to see if one account is being shared by different people.

Is Logtivity a GDPR-compliant activity log?

Can I disable all activity logs and only store custom logs?

Yes! You can easily disable all event monitoring that this plugin provides so that you can only store the user tracking audit logs that matter to you manually. You can also disable built in logs on an individual basis via the filter example below:

add_action('wp_logtivity_instance', function($Logtivity_Logger) {

    if (strpos($Logtivity_Logger->action, 'Page was updated') !== false) {


Click here for more about disabling activity logs.

Can I rename the activity logs?

Yes, it is possible to rename the events that are stored in Logtivity’s audit logs. For example, you can add this code to your site’s functions.php file. This code will result in an event “File Downloaded” being logged as “Resource Downloaded”.

add_action('wp_logtivity_instance', function($Logtivity_Logger) {
    if (strpos($Logtivity_Logger->action, 'File Downloaded') !== false) {
        $Logtivity_Logger->setAction('Resource Downloaded');

How does Logitivity compare to other activity log plugins?

There are some good WordPress activity log plugins including WP Activity Log, WP User Activity, User Activity Log, Activity Log, WP Cerber, Jetpack activity log, User Activity Tracking and Log, WP Stream, Simple History, Aryo Activity Log and more.

Logtivity is different from those plugins in several important ways:

  • It is a hosted service, so you don’t have to store all the data in your site’s database. This can really slow down your site! Logtivity allows you to store much more data, and export it more easily.
  • Deeper integration with key plugins such as Easy Digital Downloads and MemberPress.
  • Visualize your data with Logtivity’s charts.

Logitivity branding information

Logtivity is the official brandname. When writing about this activity plugin, please make sure to uppercase the L:

  • Logtivity (correct)
  • logtivity (incorrect)
  • (incorrect)
  • Log tivity, loggtivity, logg tivity (all incorrect)
