The following information is shown on the main Dashboard page.

  • Status – This is your notification inbox which provides you with a list of tasks you need to complete and past actions you've taken. This section includes search fields for your people and applications.
  • Usage – Displays usage and app statistics for your organization. Expand this section to view Apps with Most Sign-Ins and Users with Most Okta Sign-Ins.

    There can be a discrepancy between the number of unique sign-ins shown in the Apps with Most Sign-Ins list and the number in the sidebar of the app usage report. This is because the dashboard counts unique logins per user in Okta, and the sidebar in the app usage report counts unique logins per seat or account in the third-party application. For example, the unique count in the sidebar of the app usage report could be higher than the dashboard count if one person has multiple accounts in a third party application.
