Project History

 
Project Permission Needed: Project Administrator

NOTE

Before you can access Project History, an Account Administrator must first enable Recent History in Settings.

Overview

Project History allows Project Administrators to review project activity over the last 7 days. Project History provides detailed information about what changed, when it changed, and who changed it. You can see events such as changes to project settings, task updates, updated or deleted scheduled hours, and much more. You can use Project History to monitor project activity and ensure your team members are following the proper processes.

To open Project History, select the Actions (“ ”) icon in a project, then select Project History.

  • Record Type—The type of record (e.g. project, task, expense, etc.).
  • Summary—A summary of the event.
  • Record ID—The ID of the record.
  • Event—The action type (e.g. created, updated, deleted, etc.).
  • Date—The date and time when the event occurred.
  • User ID—The ID of the user who made the change.
  • Full Name—The full name of the user who made the change.

You can scroll through the pages of events using the options at the bottom of the page. New events that occur while you are in Project History will not appear until you refresh the page, apply filters, or change the number of events that display per page.

For a list of the records, events, and properties that you can view in Project History, see the Subscribed Events Reference article.

Filter_modal

The modal is divided into three sections:

  • Fields—The Fields section (the left pane) contains all the available filter types.
  • Values—The Values section (the middle pane) populates a list of values that you can select. The name of the Values section changes based on what is selected in the Fields section. For example, if you select Record Types as the field type, the middle section is titled Record Types and all the supported record types are available to select.
  • Applied Filters—The Applied Filters section (the right pane) contains all the values you've selected for your filters. You can remove a value by selecting the Clear (“   ”) icon to the right of a value, or you can select Clear All to remove all values.

After applying filters from the Filters modal, you can quickly update the values for a filter from the toolbar. These quick filters will remain in the toolbar until you leave the page, manually clear them, or log out.
