piwik feature equivalent in GA? Individual web viewer data

There is a ‘killer’ feature I love in piwik which I can’t find an equivalent in Google Analytics. See here:
In that image of the piwik feature, you can see the individual website viewer’s specific date that s/he accessed the site, the time, the duration of their visit, their location, their web browser, their O/S and what actions, like what links they clicked on. Neat, eh?


Does such a feature exist in Google Analytics? If so, could someone please direct me to the doc?


This is for my ‘two-bit’ operation. I operate a small business.


I couldn’t figure out the best sub-forum to ask my question. I apologize in advance if I am way off. If a mod could please place this in the correct sub forum, that would be great.

Hi :-)
Google analytics doesnt track/report visitor IP information. The TOS does not allow it to be used to track personally identifiable information.

You will likely find User Explorer helpful for getting some of that information


This can also be coupled with the User ID feature, however User ID doesnt work out the box.

IT does require some setup on your side so as to be able to recognize and assign an anonymous id to site users

which is then tracked by/sent to analytics
