Audit trail reporting - HR Web Platform


Sometimes in your organisation you will see a record that has undergone a change, but you will be unsure of the who, when and what aspects. In these cases, being able to generate an audit trail will allow you to look up these change details without having to track down the employees manager and other admins in your organisation and ask them if they changed any platform records.

You can use the Audit Trail reporting feature to run such a report, with the ability to drill down based on either the employee's name or a specific module within the platform. This report also allows you to view the details of each update, giving you even greater granular details on the changes undertaken and by whom.
