Ignore Server Sites in Reports

The reports that I see for my accountability partner show the majority of their traffic is from apple.com. Looking at the logs, it appears that most of this is for application updates and system updates. Since this isn't really time that the person spends actively accessing the internet, it would be nice if there was an ability to filter out these "only used for updates" sites. So a more accurate picture of their time spent on-line can be obtained.

Yes. I have the save issue also. My report does not reflect my used time AT ALL.

goffjonathan,

The Accountability Report is supposed to show two time-specific items: 1) Average Hourly Usage and 2) the amount of time an Android app was used. 

The second one (about Android apps) will not appear if the User is not using Covenant Eyes for Android.

Does your report include the section 'Average Hourly Usage'?

Karl,

Thanks for posting! I'm happy to pass along your suggestion to the team that reviews such matters; but I want to make sure I'm understanding your scenario. Is the apple.com URL showing up in 1) the Accountability Report, or 2) the Detailed Browsing Log, or 3) both of those?

Hello Robert,

The first place I notice the apple.com URL is in the "Top Websites" Section of the accountability report. I think it also affects the "Average Hourly Usage" Section, but there's not an easy way to check that I don't think.

I also found the apple.com URLs in the Detailed Browsing Log, but I don't typically look at those, so I don't think we should focus on that.
