If you are willing to pay for the premium version then you have an awesome plugin (probably the best of breed). BUT the version in the repository lacks even the basic functionality (e.g. search) needed for it to be useful.

Nice to have this kind of plugins which work what suppose to. This help me understand activity on site and make decisions. Support is also responsive and helpful

I have been searching for something like this for a while, this is very comprehensive, very well thought out, this is the best plugin for tracking user activity, nothing else is even close, the one thing i wish, is that it would track taxonomies as well, but it is a cut above the rest.

This morning when I updated this plugin, every site that was running it ended up with fatal errors. That will stop the "activity" on a site EVERY time! Needless to say, this plugin has been removed from all my clients' sites.

WP Activity Log plugin is one of the best plugins I have used and, more important, the usability is the best I have used so far in terms of a logical process, I can say this because the site I used it on is managed by admin who know very little about Wordpress, just the basics that apply to their own installation, and they manage it just fine. Very very low maintenance when set and very logical process which is perfect for users new to Wordpress systems.
