Change Logging

The purpose of change logging is to record with a record within EBMS has changed or been created.   Some documents within EBMS include an entry date to record when the document was created.  Many documents do not have the capability to record each change without the change login feature.  EBMS has offered a custom programming script prior to EBMS version 8.5 but now this feature is included in enterprise versions of the software.  

The system cannot log the following items:
