Chromebook Metadata Missing Recent Users?

Chromebook Getter utilizes the Admin Console's data to report Chromebook metadata to the Administrator in a readable format.  The Most Recent User metadata field is updated within the Admin Console on the Logout event on the Chromebook.

The Logout event is also tied to the device setting to erase local user data.  As a result, when this setting is configured to erase user data, the Most Recent user data is empty.  The setting for this can be found under Device Management > Chrome > Device Settings and we recommend setting the User Data setting to Do not erase all local user data if administrators want to have a list of recent logged in users.
