Tip Of The Month – Viewing The History Of An Item 

Did You Know?

BarnOwl objects all have a History log, which keeps track of changes made to any item by operation type: capture, edit and delete.
You can view the History for an item by clicking the button at the top of the item form.
In this example, we are going to use the Risk form as an example, but all BarnOwl object forms contain this button, except for the Key Indicator capture/edit form.
The History form shows you the name of the user, the date and time when the change was made, and what changes were made.
