Natural HR provides an audit log which will show events such as:
- log in and log out
- announcement added
- employee added
- social recognition added
- timesheet added
- time off added
- created report
- document viewed
- document uploaded
- document downloaded
- report builder permissions updated
- display settings updated
- company settings updated
The Audit log can be found by going to
Administration > Company > Auditing
For each logged event, the 'Date', 'Username' and 'IP address' for the user who completed the 'Action' will be recorded. This could be useful if a situation arises where you need to prove that a particular action has been carried out at a particular time by a particular user.
Purging the audit log
Your Natural HR system keeps 30 days of audited actions in the audit log. If your audit log data contains data older than 30 days, you may wish to delete these older records. There is a red 'Purge' button at the bottom of the screen. This will permanently delete the contents of the audit log and cannot be reversed. If you choose to purge the audit log then you may wish to export the data to a CSV or Excel file first. Remember that only what you see listed will be exported so make sure you select ALL (in this view, currently showing 10)
After clicking on the 'Purge' button you will see an option to click on 'Confirm' and a warning to tell you this action cannot be reversed once completed. After clicking on 'Confirm' you will have a final 'Are you sure?' warning before clicking on 'OK'.
After clicking on 'OK' the audit log will be purged, leaving only the last 30 days of audited actions.
Action ID numbers
Each action performed within Natural HR is allocated a unique Action ID number which can be seen at the end of each audit log entry. This allows either you or Natural HR support to track all actions which are linked to a particular request.
To view all actions linked with an individual record, simply type the record ID number into the search box to show all actions bearing this unique ID number.
