Check out your team's progress in the Activity report.
The Activity report is a great tool for managers to see what team members have been up to, and check on how your team is performing against their quotas. If you haven't yet set up activity quotas but would like to establish these goals for your team, check out this article.
Using the activity report
The activity report consists of three sections: Summary, Detail, and Activities. You can filter the information that you would like to see in each section and change the timeframe that you are reporting on.
Show activities in the Activity report
Any time one of your team members logs an activity, it will be counted in the report. Emails sent with Nutshell or synced to Nutshell will automatically be included in the report and count as logged activities.
- Activity type: Choose one or multiple activity types
- Users and teams: Filter by users or teams
To apply filters to your Activity report, choose them from the drop-down and then use the green checkmark to apply your selection.
Select the timeframe that you would like to report on. You can use a built-in date range such as last 30 days or this quarter, or you can set your own by clicking on calendar dates. You also have the option of typing in the specific date range you are interested in viewing.
Want to see your (or your team's) activity effort compared with a previous timeframe? Just use the "Compare to" checkbox to see if there has been an improvement.
- Previous period: compares your selected timeframe with the previous timeframe of the same length
- Previous year: compares your selected timeframe with the same timeframe in the previous year
Reading the Activity report
The Summary section provides a count of all logged activities by user and type. Activities without a quota are displayed as the total number of logged activities by type, while activities with a quota show the total number of logged activities, the total number needed to meet the quota, and the percentage of progress toward the goal for each user.
A note about quotas:
If you change activity quotas mid-week, the goals appearing in the report will be pro-rated for that time period. Since the quotas are a weekly count, they will reset at the start of the next full week.
The Detail section provides a daily breakdown of each activity type and an approximation of how much time the user spent in Nutshell.
Time in Nutshell: This is a rough calculation of the time that a user has spent working in Nutshell each day, based on the pages visited in the application and how frequently the individual is clicking on things. It is not the total time of logged activities in Nutshell.
The time each team member spends on the phone or in meetings is calculated per activity type and per day. The total number and time spent on each logged activity is shown in the row next to your team member's name at the top of their daily chart.
The Activities section shows a running list of every logged activity in your Nutshell account, including notes.
You will see which teammate logged the activity, the type, notes on the activity, and all of the participants.
Save, Share, and Export
When you apply filters for Activity type, Users & teams, or date range, you might want to come back to this report again and again without the need to recreate it each time. Nutshell's Activity reports can be saved and shared with your teammates.
Click the green Save button to save a new report. Give your report a descriptive name so you can easily identify it in the future.
Use the Save as button to update an existing saved report. You would want to do this if you've edited your report filters and want to replace a report you've previously saved.
Click Share to make a saved report available to others in your organization.

Note: Reports can only be shared with other team members who are a part of your Nutshell account.
