The Portal Usage Log allows school staff to view the page usage of the Parent Portal, Mobile Portal app, Aeries Student app, and other vendor student apps. Various filtering options are available at the top of the page to limit the records. The maximum number of records reported in any search is 500. This limitation is in place to ensure the page response is not adversely affected by loading too many records.
