KaviŽ Status Tracker Help
The Full Logs tool is used by Report Admins to retrieve information from the Full Logs by create customized views. Every change that occurs in the Kavi Status Tracker database is automatically recorded in the Full Logs. Log entries include when the change occurred, who initiated the change, which fields were affected and the new field values. The Full Logs are highly detailed and some of the information is technical and may not be immediately meaningful to all users. If you encounter information that you don't understand, you may want to consult an administrator.
The Full Logs show the data object (i.e., dataskin) that changed, rather than the specific project or activity whose information changed.
The Full Logs show the new values of changed fields.
The Full Logs offer search capabilities that are not available with other tools, such as the ability to search by item key.

Set your search criteria using any combination of the available fields. The logs are extensive, so it's best to set your search criteria to narrow the results as much as possible. Set a bounded date range and enter values in text boxes whenever you can. This helps retrieve optimal results in the shortest possible time, with the least drain on system resources.
Note that you can enter full or partial values in the text fields because this tool will perform partial matches. If your first search doesn't return the information you need, see if a partial match will work. This helps eliminate mismatches due to minor variations in the way a name is entered, etc.
- After This Time
Use this field to set a point in time. The Full Logs will include only those changes logged after the time specified.
- Before This Time
Use this field to set a point in time. The Full Logs will include only those changes logged before the time specified.
The time fields can be used together to specify a bounded time range beginning at the time set in the After This Time field and ending at the time set in the Before This Time field.
- Who Initiated Action
Specify a username to search by the user initiating the change.
- What Action Was Taken
Specify an action to search for changes of a specific type (e.g., 'added,' 'edited,' 'deleted,' 'email'), or enter the name of a specialist (i.e., the DataSkin that performs the kind of action that you are trying to locate in the log).
- Action Details
Enter an action detail to search for changes related to that detail (e.g., field name, field value, etc.). The search capabilities provided by this versatile field include the ability to search for email addresses, item key and myriad other details, including partial matches.

You will often see more than one entry (i.e. row) in the report for a single project or activity where each entry has the same exact time. This shows that the data change affected more than one database table.
Because the Full Logs can be extremely long, the length of the results table is limited to 1000 entries. If you have reason to believe that your search results may exceed this limit, try setting more restrictive search criteria.
The report displays the following columns:
The date and time of the change.
- Who Initiated Action
The username of the user initiating the change. The username 'system' indicates an automated or uploaded change. If this is 'Anonymous User,' the change was made from a publicly accessible page.
The type of activity, the database table and the unique item key identifying the data object affected by the change.
The names of fields affected by the change and the new field values.
