Audit trail reporting | HR Employee File

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 HR platform records.

You can use the Audit Trail feature within an employee's file to view a change log of what data modifications occurred to that specific employees record on the HR platform. This feature also allows you to view the details of each update, giving you even greater granular details on the changes undertaken and by whom.


To view the audit trail for all your employees at once, you will need to create an Audit Trail report. To read further details on how to create an Audit Trail report, refer to the following article.
