Auditor Fast Facts

What does it mean?

Auditor is FIELD specific auditing – what does that mean? It means you can look at any window in GP and pick and choose a particular piece of information on that window you want to capture changes to.

Does that mean I can only audit one thing? Nope – there are no limits on the number of fields you can audit.

Does Auditor slow GP to a crawl? Nope – we aren’t capturing an entire table’s worth of changes, just the fields you want. You might go a little audit crazy in the beginning and try to audit everything, but you’ll get the hang of it and figure out what’s really important to you to catch.

What if I don’t want something changed? Easy – put a lock on the field and require a user or an approver to sign off before the change is made!

What if I want to know WHY a user changed something? Just mark a checkbox when you set up the audit and require users to complete a note as to why they changed a field value.

Can I get a notification as soon as a field changes? Yep! Emailed, via the Auditor message center or both.

Can I audit an integration? Yes! Use a SQL table audit to capture changes written directly to a GP table and changes that are made through SQL scripts.
