Tech Tip: System Log – Your Record of Events
Scheduling managers: raise your hand if anyone has ever come to you saying, “But you approved my shift trade/PTO last month,” and you have zero recollection of that action? Even if you didn’t actually raise your hand, chances are you’re nodding along. We’re all human and sometimes we can’t remember all these details. Thankfully, the System Log Report in Aladtec is a resourceful tool for reviewing actions completed in the system. Details found in the System Log may be helpful in providing information for actions, such as:
- Who modified a member’s schedule and when those changes were made
- What Time-Off requests were approved or denied for a member during the last year
- When were Signup requests submitted and approved for a specific member in the last month
Information in the System Log can be narrowed down to focus on actions occurring within a specific date range, as shown in the example below.
In addition, information in the System Log can be filtered based on actions taken by or affecting a specific member, as well as a specific time range. These filters are displayed when selecting Edit as shown below.
Applying these filters in the System Log will result in a more detailed output of information. For example, the system log below shows all actions relating to Signups for one affected member within a month.
