The Users feature allows administrators to view and apply specific policies, schedules, and block pages to an organization’s users on a granular level. Reports and query logs can also be filtered on a per-user basis, to enable more detailed reporting and troubleshooting.

In order for Users to be filtered and reported on, the following must be true:

  • Roaming Client should be installed on the device.
  • The device has communicated with the DNSFilter Dashboard at least once after the user has logged in.
  • All applicable users must login to the device.
