Unique Users

This report lets you see the distinct visitors to your website.

For authenticated portals, visitor tracking is done by identifying the user logon name. For anonymous websites, tracking is done by using a cookie to identify a browser on a particular computer as a single visitor.

This report displays the user’s logon name, cookie identifier or IP address (for anonymous SharePoint sites). When configuring Active Directory updates, additional user information can be displayed, such user name, role, etc.

When tracking unique visitors in anonymous websites, there is no way to know if a single person is using different browsers to visit your site. In this case each browser a person uses actually counts as a distinct visitor in Analytics. There is also no way to know if two people are sharing the same browser on the same user profile, and this activity would be tracked as activity from one visitor. Additionally, if user identification is based on IP address, when a user changes his IP address he will be identified as a new user.

CardioLog Analytics also supports scenarios where a SharePoint site is available both for authenticated and anonymous users. For more information see - Monitoring authenticated users in an Anonymous environment after they sign in
