Analyze Identity Verification Activity
Northern Trail Outfitters wants to create reports and a dashboard to track identity verification activity. Joel found some instructions to:
- Create a user list view of active customers to manage identity verifications by user.
- Create a custom report type and reports to gather information about the community’s identity verification activity.
- Create a graphical representation of the reports with a dashboard.
Create a User List View to Manage Identity Verifications by User
You can see which users have verified their email address or mobile phone number from the Users page in Setup. But it’s a long list.

- From Setup, enter Users in the Quick Find box, and click Users.
- Click Create New View and name the view Active Identity Verified Users.
- Under Specify Filter Criteria, select Active equals True.
Under Select Fields to display, add and remove fields until you get this list.
- Full Name
- User Verified Email
- User Verified Mobile Number

Your view should look like this.
Your list of users is now filtered so it’s easy to see which active users have verified their identity, and by which method.

Joel got in the data-visualization groove and added a few of his own dashboard components. He created a Lightning table to list identity verifications by username. He created a stacked horizontal chart to show the breakdown of identity verifications by what triggered the verifications using:
- Identity Verification Triggered By for name of the report
- Stacked Horizontal Bar for the chart
- Location: City for Y-Axis, Record Count for X-Axis, and Triggered By for Stack By
- Identity Verification Triggered By for Title
Joel added and rearranged his dashboard to look something like this.
