Display current report of which domain users are logged into which computers

Within my Server 2016 Active Directory domain how can I generate a current report of which domain users are logged into which computers?

I would like to generate a GUI, web-based, or command line report with this information.

If this can't be done natively within Server 2016 then what third-party utilities or programs can be used to do this?

We've answered similar questions for you in the past.

Create a login script that you can then log the information - the command you would include in a batch script has been provided for you before in BOTH of the following questions you asked just two weeks ago:

You can similarly create a group policy logout script to record logouts, BUT this is HIGHLY FLAWED because some users just lock the machines and don't log out, crashes (BSODs) and power failures will not record those logouts.  For that reason, it's generally folly in my opinion to try to record logouts.

You can use active directory auditing solution to know which user has logged on or logged off, when, and from where with detailed report.

Else, PsLoggedOn tool can be used to find current logged on user to which computer.

Moreover, refer to below informative step by step articles:
