Tracking Services in ArcGIS Online

We've been playing with tracking services using Collector and Operations Dashboards and while the service seems to work as advertised we do have some questions about additional functionality.

First, is there a way to differentiate between users being tracked against the same tracking service.  What we'd really like is in Dashboard have a table of contents listing that shows, by ArcGIS Online login, who is being actively tracked and have different colors and/or symbols used to track each user.  Can this be done today?

While there are pop-ups associated with each 'breadcrumb', the only data appended to the pop-up is relative GPS accuracy.  Is there a way to have the pop-up also carry the user name and data/time stamp when the breadcrumb was created? 

Is there a way to filter the breadcrumbs and have them show, in a highlighted fashion (say a pulsing beacon), just the current location of the device running Collector?  Many of our customers don't care about where their workers were, just where they are now. 

Is there a way to have the tracking service 'connect the dots'?  We collect data in some pretty dense areas and we'd like to have the bread crumbs connected so we can discern the actual path each field collector takes.  Otherwise we just have hundreds of points clustered in small areas that don't make any sense for determining who went where, and when.
