Hi,

 

Is it possible to obtain an audit trail of who has logged on, where they have visited, documents they have downloaded etc. from SharePoint Online for a particular site or sub-site? 

and/or

Overall stats on activity for a site or sub-site? 

 

Thank you for your time,

Ollie

Yes, see searching audit log from security center here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Search-the-audit-log-in-the-Office-365-Security-Compliance-...

. You can filter down to certain actions, site, user etc. However, keep in mind you can only search back 90 days.

Well,
Not in a central point but you can get this information from different sources:
(1) Compliance & Security Center, Audit Log Searc
(2) SharePoint Usage Reports + Power BI Adoption Pack
(3) Audting Feature in SPO
Other things you can do:
(1) You can add Google Analytics to your sites, but you will need some programming
(2) You can also access change log and usage data using Office 365 APIs
