We've heard a lot of requests for Network Creators to have more visibility into what their members are doing on your Ning Network. We've launched the Leaderboards feature and the new Dashboard to try to provide just this type of insight.
However, there was a simple piece missing — knowing when the last time was that each member visited your Ning Network. We're happy to announce that ends today!
Shortly, you'll be able to see a new column in your members spreadsheet that records the most recent activity (for instructions on how to export your list of members to a spreadsheet, read this document). Next to each member's name, you'll see the last date that they visited your Ning Network. This data is updated only once every 24 hours, so it could take up to a day to show a recently visited member's new date.
This isn't retroactive, so dates will only be displayed for members who visit from this point forward. The remainder will be blank. However, as weeks and months go by, this should provide you great insight into who's visiting, especially those members that are visiting without participating. It should also give you a new way to target inactive members and encourage them to come back.
We're exploring adding this date to profile pages as well, and we'd love your feedback on that.
