Session Collaboration

Is there a way to track who uses the session collaboration feature and who joins the session?  I checked the session, event and performance logs, but could not find an entry related to session collaboration.

Since this can be a security risk for company information, there should be a way of tracking it's usage.

Re: Session Collaboration

Hi Marian,

If this is a security risk, why not turn it off?

The setting is found under QVS settings within the QMC, Documents.

Re: Session Collaboration

Hi Erik,

They would like to use this feature, but be able to have some control over how it is used.  They don't want employees sharing the information inappropriately.

Re: Session Collaboration

To clarify - yes it is possible to track who uses collaboration. In the audit log example above, the domain\username of the person who initiates sharing of the session is presented on each line.

You can also see who joins the session, "Testing123" in this case, The joining username is entered manually by the user who joins the session and is not validated.
