Is there a way that I can determine which user is running what report(s)?

I created a time tracking application. Each manager has a home page with report buttons specific to their team. Can I tell somehow which manager has run their respective reports? Is there an audit trail somewhere, or another report I can create that will show this information?

Thank you!

Well, if you wanted to go through the effort, it is theoretically possible to construct a URL formula which can be put into a button that would write out a log record to a table and then run a report.  You could then know who pushed the button and when. But you would have to build those buttons yourself, there is no native logging capability to know when a button was pushed.  I suppose that you can also look at the report list to see when a particular report was last run, that's an option too.

When looking at the report list, it only tells me the date the report was last run. My VP is looking to see which manager's ran their respective reports and when. I think I will need the URL formula. Can you help me with that?
Thank you.

Hello Coach,
I too need to know which user is running which reports. What is the best way to make this happen. Appreciate any guidance you can provide. Thanks.
