The Master Administrator and all Senior Administrators can view all actions. Assistant Administrators can view only their own actions.

For each action, the Journal shows the Date/Time, details of the Action, and the Administrator ID of the person who performed the action (By). The Journal shows 50 events per page. To move through the complete list, click the Previous 50 link and Next 50 link at the top of the page.

The journal shows links in the action column for users, devices, schedules, holidays, sites, groups, reports, and control panels.  Administrators may click on those links and be taken to a new journal page filtered for that particular link.
