Question:
What is the "Latest Activity" information in the Identity Portal?
Environment:
CA Identity Portal 14.x\ CA Identity Suite 14.x
Answer:
The 'Latest Activity' panel displays requests and approval actions that the logged in user has made most recently. 
 
Additional Information:
The logged in user must have the "My Requests" module or the 'Latest Activity' panel in the "My Profile" module will not display the user's most recent requests, it will just appear blank. The same goes for the "Tasks" module - if it is not included in the logged in user Profile then the user won't be able to see his latest approval items. 

Apart from these prerequisites, there is no specific configuration for this 'Latest Activity' panel.
