Audit Logging

A detailed audit log

An audit trail records a complete record of changes and actions that take place on files in Document Locator. A detailed log for each document can track all events that have occurred.

Administrators configure document logging to record actions against files and folders, or tailor logging to record specific actions against a subset of files. The logging history includes events like identifying users who have viewed a document, what notes were recorded during a check-in process, information about approvals, and more.
