Resolution 6:

In order for Auditor to track the changes, it is necessary for all the Users to have the DEFAULTUSER Task assigned to at least one Role that they are in and that the DEDAULTUSER Task must have the appropriate Operations marked.

  1. Go to Microsoft Dynamics GP | Tools | Setup | System | Security Roles.
  2. Select the Role ID that is assigned to the User.
  3. Verify the DEFAULTUSER Security Task ID is marked.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Go to Microsoft Dynamics GP | Tools | Setup | System | Security Tasks.
  6. Select the DEFAULTUSER Task ID.
  7. Select Auditor for Product, Windows for Type, and Series for System. For Dynamics GP 10.0 and later versions, the DEFAULTUSER Task must have these Operations checked:
    • Approvers
    • Auditor Note Maintenance
    • Enter Approver Password
    • E-Sign Approval Needed
    • E-Sign Approvals
    • E-Sign Pending Approval Requests
    • Segregation of Duties Group
  8. Next select 3rd Party for Series. The following Operations must be marked for Dynamics GP 10.0 and later:
    • About Auditor
    • Auditor Setup
    • Code
    • Register Rockton Products
  9. Click Save.


If the audit is still not tracking changes after checking and/or completing the above steps, please export the Audit Group from the Auditor Group Maintenance window and send it to us at with an explanation of your desired results.
