This section describes how to find information about External users in your environment using Syskit Point.
If you want to find out everything about External users and their access to your environment, you can simply open the Syskit Point web application and within the Users Overview screen, from the View drop-down menu (1) located on the top left of the overview screen, choose External Users (2) view.
The picture below shows you how to switch between different views at the Users Overview screen.
Users Overview screen - opening views (1) and selection of External Users view (2)
You will find useful data while checking the External Users view in the grid, such as the sign-in status of the user.
You can open Column Chooser with the list of all available columns to display by clicking on the button located on the left side of the Search field.

Detailed information about each External user (or any other user) is visible on their User Details screen.
There you can find information divided into few tiles - General info, OneDrive, Analytics & Usage, Microsoft Teams & Groups Memberships, and Sites tile.

By default, this report has the timeframe for the Last 30 Days. To switch this, choose a different timeframe from the dropdown menu.
Every report within the Syskit Point is exportable, all of them in the form of Microsoft Excel Worksheet file type and most of them in PDF file type. You will find this option in the sidebar panel under the section Manage > Export button.
The icon will point out which export file type are you choosing. You can also access the User Activity report from the Report Center when you click the Reports button on the left of the screen.
The reports screen will open where you can select the type of report you want to sccess from the All reports drop-down bar (1) on the top left of the report screen.
