Track User Actions in Lightning Experience with Event Log Files

We added event types to the EventLogFile standard object to better track user adoption and app performance in Lightning Experience. These event types improve on the existing UI Tracking event type by separating user data into four distinct categories. These events are available in the API, but not yet in the Event Monitoring Wave app.
Available in: Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions

We added four event types to the EventLogFile object.
  • Lightning Error—Errors that occurred during user interactions with the Lightning Experience UI, such as a user receives an Aura error on a page in the app.
  • Lightning Interaction—User interactions with the Lightning Experience UI, such as a user clicks in the navigation header or a task list.
  • Lightning Page View—Information about the page on which the event occurred in the Lightning Experience UI, such as the effective page time and the page entities that the user interacted with.
  • Lightning Performance—Data to spot trends in your Lightning Experience app performance, such as page start times and duration.

Example

You want to research how your reps use the Tasks page in your app to customize it to their needs. You use the data in the Lightning Page View event type to review how reps get to the page, how long they stay, and the page entities they interact with.Lightning Page View event data displayed in Microsoft ExcelYou drill down into your users’ interactions with Tasks page elements, like the task list and Lightning navigation header, by reviewing the Lightning Interaction event type data.Lightning Interaction event data displayed in Microsoft Excel
