    You could track user activity through audit logs. Here are steps:

    1.Go to Central Administration -> Manage service applications -> Select Secure Store Service application and click the properties from the ribbon -> Enable audit and set the number of days to keep audit logs until be purged.

    2.Go to Site settings -> Click the Site collection audit settings -> Configure the audit log settings.

    3.Go to Site settings -> Site content types -> Click the content type you want to -> Click the Information management policy setting -> Enable auditing.

    4.Go to Site settings -> Site collection features -> Activate Reporting feature.

    5.Go to Sites settings -> Click the Audit log reports -> Click content viewing report, you also can click custom reports to custom your content viewing report.
