Activity Gadget

The Activity gadget enables users to view page activity on all sites or on one site and its folders during a specified period of time. Page activity includes the number of pages added, updated, and removed from the site(s). The gadget also shows the number of pages on the site(s) and the number of pages ready to be published. By default, the gadget shows activity for all sites in the last five days, but you can change the settings.

If the gadget is in the larger column of the Dashboard it appears as:

Activity Sites Oly 

If the gadget is in the narrower column of the Dashboard, it does not include statistics for pages added, updated, and removed, but includes the column Changes, which is the sum of these three values:
