Using Groups for Precise User Activity Control

One of the most convenient options available in StatWin is adjustable groups. Groups are perfect for more precise control over user activity, plus they allow you to see general trends at the same time. Here is how groups work.

StatWin control various types of user activity, including running processes, opened websites, accessed local network resources and so on. By default, StatWin provides a number of pre-defined templates for the most common types of applications and websites, like browsers, office applications and correspondingly social networks, e-mail services or entertainment websites. The program determines the appropriate group by analyzing the executable of an application or a URL of a website.

You can filter elements in the main window using the group drop-down box:

So if you want to see who has run certain type of applications, like e-mail clients, or internet messengers – select the appropriate group in the drop-down. By default, each group contains process names of the most common applications only. Nevertheless you can easily extend the list by adding any number of other programs to any group.

Open the “Edit | Groups” menu and select a group category. As you can see, StatWin supports groups for processes, Internet sites, network users and network files. Let’s select “Processes”

The following window will open:

Select the group you need and click the “Edit” button.

For example, let’s add Safari to the list of browsers. Note that StatWin can detect an application using process name, process path or window title. Click the “Edit” button below the process name list and type “safari” in the left box, then click the “Add >>” button. Note that you can simply find the running application in the list and add it with just once click.

The same way you can adjust website groups and network file groups.

Not only does StatWin provide a number of standard groups, and a way to fill them up, it also allows you to create new groups as well. To create a group, we’ll use the “Edit | Groups” menu. Well, let’s create a sample group for StatWin itself. Select “Processes”.

Click the “Add” button to open a dialog we’ve already seen before. Type the name of the group and add “SeeStat.exe” process to the list:

Click OK to save the changes. Now you can filter the list and reports and see the data for StatWin application:

Groups are an easy and convenient way to get precise control over user activity on your computer. Aside from simple groups, StatWin also allows you to create composite groups. You can read more about them here.
