Sites on the Free plan will have access to only the 20 most recent events. Customers on any paid plan (Personal, Premium, or Professional) will have access to all recorded events from the past 30 days.

The timestamp displayed in the Activity matches the timezone you’ve set in your site’s settings (configured from Settings — General in your dashboard).

To filter by date range:

  1. Select Date Range
  2. Select the start date.
  3. Select the end date.
  4. Click Apply.
