Audit Log

The Audit Log is a chronological record of all the activities and changes made by Staff members to certain features or “elements” inside your CINNOX service. Examples of these include downloading files, creating user accounts, or deleting phone numbers.

The Audit Log can serve as your organisation’s activity audit trail and improve your service's security. As a staff administrator, you can view the data in the Audit Log in real-time or export them to an encrypted file so you can analyse the activities, identify any anomalies or discrepancies, and perform corrective measures immediately.
