How to use Google Analytics to track one user?

My project is quite special, it's quite internal so the user pool is small and registered. I need to track how they use our app. i am thinking using their encrypted name as user id when sending log signal. But is it a good idea? I see that there is a user explorer section which list all user's action step by step, which is too detailed and not what we want. And then the behaviour section seems like for analysing a group of user instead of one user, which seems like not what i want. so what should i do? Is it okay for me to add their id in custom dimension?

Also it seems the user view is not working. the real time report gets signal, but the normal report gets no data even when another view does. I am using Unity so i guess GoogleAnalyticsV4.instance.SetUserIDOverride() is good enough, right?

user id feature should help: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3123666?hl=en

 

do not track any personal information, even in hashed format: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2795983?hl=en

 

The Analytics terms of service, which all Analytics customers must adhere to, prohibits sending personally identifiable information (PII) to Analytics (such as names, social security numbers, email addresses, or any similar data), or data that permanently identifies a particular device (such as a mobile phone’s unique device identifier if such an identifier cannot be reset). Learn more about how to avoid sending PII. Your Analytics account could be terminated and your data destroyed if you use any of this information.

 yes i know. but in here (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6366371?hl=en&ref_topic=2919631) it said using SHA256 encrypt information is okay.
