Monitor RDP login from another computer

I have a developer that works continuously on some 5 or so files via an RDP link through Windows 10 or higher.

Any assistance in figuring out how to do this is greatly appreciated.

TeamViewer just allows to keep a log file of connections and file transfers. If that is sufficient for you, ok. But using TeamViewer is not the same as RDP, and I really prefer RDP over TV, for a lot of reasons. E.g. because TV has to go thru a TV server if only HTTP(s) can be used instead of the proprietary TV port.
