'User Activity' and 'Site Trash' are new tools available in Branch CMS. They provide you with valuable insight into how the software is being used, and a few ways to restore content if it was mistakenly deleted. Sometimes things get complicated, but we're here to help keep it simple.

User Activity

To view User Activity in Branch CMS, go to My Apps -> Users (Admin) -> User Activity. You will see a page similar to this:

When viewing User Activity you may adjust the filters. For example, if you're looking to see what's been Added you may filter by 'Activity: Add'.

You may also want to filter by User, App, and Date Range.
