Activity logs

The activity log contains a list of all the updates that are being made to your account data. It also lists the name of the person who did the activity. All the activities from users have been divided into four different categories; account, people, projects and templates. By default, logs are only visible to the account owner only but right to manage logs can be given from custom roles.

The entries will show up in the order of latest to oldest and they will be segregated month wise. Here’s how the account owner can access the activity logs from his/her account:

  1. Click Manage button from top bar inside a project and choose View project logs.
