Dashboard Gauge to See Users' Last Login Date

 Creating a custom Dashboard Gauge in is a great way to show when your users have last logged in. To do this, we need to create a Report based on users’ last login and create a Dashboard Gauge pulling data from the report which will present it in a coherent, user-friendly manner.


Under the “Reports” tab, click “New Report”:

From the Fields pane, drag and drop the fields to add to the report. Group the range by "This Week". This will allow you to determine when a user last logged into Salesforce. Then Click Save to save and name the report:

Now that you’ve created the report, create a Dashboard to view the data more interactively. Under the Reports tab, click New Dashboard. Drag the “Gauge” component and drop it in the first column. Under “Data Source”, drag the report created earlier and drop it to the Gauge component. Then Click “Save”. Name the Dashboard and click “Save and Run”.

When you click on the Gauge after you run it, you will see the report with the list of employees and their login data within the week!
