1) Last Touch Date vs Last Processed Date vs Enable Tracking Date

Last Touch Date: This date tells when the user was last active in CRM with any specific activity i.e. created/updated account/contact etc. User Adoption Monitor tracks the last CRM touch of the user and shows it as a 'Last Touch Date'.

Last Processed Date: There is a process involved in the 'systemuser-login' entity configuration, that runs in the background depending on the polling interval defined for the 'systemuser-login' entity configuration. For example, if the 'Preferred Start Time' and 'Polling' are defined as below –

Then, the process will first run at 18:18 and it will continue triggering at the interval of every 4 hours as the polling is set to 'Every 4 Hours' as seen in the above image. Each time the process triggers, it checks for the CRM access of the respective users within that period of time (polling) and track the same.

Enable Tracking Date: This is the date when 'systemuser-login' entity configuration was enabled/created.
