All changes made to any data, whether settings or time & attendance data, are written to an audit log, with the exception of regular worker-initiated punches. There are two reports for viewing these audit logs:
- Audit - the general report to filter and view all audit log information
- Audit Time - view changes made specifically to punches, formatted in a style optimized for punch data
Both reports offer advanced customization options, including query filters:
Some of the terminology you'll see used in these reports are:
- Application - the software used to when making the logged change, i.e., Console, Time Clock, or API
- Actor - the entity making the change, i.e., time clock device, user, or API
- Affected Resources - the entity being changed, e.g., punch, user, shift class, etc.
- Associated Resources - any entities related to the affected resource, e.g., the worker whose punch was edited, a user's department and/org org unit, etc.
- Fields - specific fields being edited, e.g., the IN/OUT time of an edited punch, what pay class a created worker was assigned to, etc.
