Shared Folders Activity Log

The Activity Log allows you to view a list of activities within the Shared Folders module, helping you to track who is accessing and modifying information in the folders. You can filter the log to further focus the information presented.

The Activity Log does not track history within personal folders. It only displays history from the team shared folders. See Project Folders vs. Personal Folders for more information.

Downloads by external users via the weblink feature are not tracked in the Activity Log, since it is not possible to discover the name of the person downloading the files.
