See a user's total login time

So I'm sure this must be fairly easy, but I've just spent two hours prompting Google and surfing with no luck other than creating a script. Any help would be greatly appreciate it.

 

Is there any way to see the total login time for a user? Ideally over a week or month, but at least a day. I think there should be a native way to do it, but if there isn't, third-party software is perfectly fine, as long as it is well-known and has been thoroughly tested before.

 

It doesn't have to be accurate to the minute either. Even +-15min would be fine.

Thanks!

What's the OS (platform) you are trying to query?

I rent a managed Windows Server 2012 which is accessed by about 12 employees. I just want to have a general idea of how long they are logged on and active per week.

Time spent Accessing to shares or just logged on to a client?  Is this an Active Directory domain?

 

I still don't get a clear picture about your environment.

 

Have you tried from a CMD Prompt:  net user "user name"  ??

I don't know enough about all this, but it you tell me how, I can check and let you know.

 

 

When I run the command you sent me I get the following fields:

User name
Full Name

Password expires
Password changeable

Did you run that command form the server or a client?  From my results, I can tell you the client is in a Workgroup and not a Domain Member.

 

 

Are you trying to restrict access or what's the end game?

I ran it from the server. Indeed, I see something very similar to your post. I just didn't post the information that comes right after every field.

 

My objective is to get a general idea if the employees that work remotely are doing approximately the amount of hours they are supposed to be doing per week. I don't want it to be too controlling or anything, I just want to be able to check the number from time to time, and see that it matches what I expect from them.

Let me see if I can find a script.  Now, everything is at the domain level, right?  No workgroups, etc/

Thanks! I would think so, but I really can't tell. This is all being managed by the hosting company. If you tell me how I will check.

 

In case it helps at all, this is what I see under the network tab in the file explorer: Xd8n72F.png Mine is one of these. The other ones, I believe are other installations of Windows Server rented by other user of the managed hosting with no relation to my company.

Is there anything I can do to assist you in your helping me?
