Audit Logs Overview

Agencies can enable audit log functionality for many different portlets that users work with every day. Audit logs give you the ability to review historical data for records. For example, when a user creates a new record, Civic Platform records the first entry in each field for the audit log. Essentially, Civic Platform records any action to add, update, or delete data from a record for the audit log.

No matter where you access an audit log in Civic Platform, you interact with the logs in the same way. Though the data you view may differ, the command buttons and filtering process are consistent from log to log, with some minor variation to filtering options for certain audit log types.
