How to get the actual count of how many users are online right now, without having to count them by scrolling and counting manually.

If you are asking about your app users/contacts that are online right now, I do that via data platform using the Last Seen filter.

 

Using Last Seen Exactly 0 days ago which seems to work like 'Just Now' when you look at a user.

 

Thanks, but actually, that doesn't give me a list of users online right now. If I keep scrolling, I can see that it is giving me a listing of who was online from the start of the day and onward. It gives me the same results as if I set a filter for, last seen after yesterday.

Fair call and sorry for that - you can see (and scroll) but not get the count - i gave up scrolling and assumed the count was correct.

 

Another option could be to capture a data point from your app (an event) that represents current status (logged in/active/session duration) but that would not be out of the box.

 

Does sound like Intercom could give us a data point such as Current Status (Active / Offline) as you can see that on the Users avatar (green for online). @eric f11​ that might be a quick win to make available.
