How can Event Reporting Help Me?

Activity Log

Monitor Data Loss

Imagine that an employee leaves your company and joins a major competitor. Later, you  find out that competitor is offering a solution that is exactly like the one that is on your product development roadmap. You suspect that your former employee downloaded information containing roadmap details and shared it with the competition. If you had been using Smartsheet Event Reporting, you could have caught this illicit behavior before your competitor gained access to your proprietary information.


Enforce Policies

Even well-intentioned employees can misuse data. By identifying anomalous Smartsheet access and behavior patterns across your organization using Event Reporting, you can pinpoint individuals who are operating outside of the established organizational security and compliance policies, then take action to correct their behavior.
