CDD Vault Update (May 2019): ELN Audit Trail

CDD Vault Update Logo

Historically, spring was a hallmark season for new trails and new adventures. In the 1800s, American pioneers emigrated westward following the Oregon Trail. These pioneers embarked on their journeys during the Spring in order to reach Oregon before the winter snows made travel impossible.

Keeping with this tradition, CDD is announcing a trail of our own… the ELN Audit Trail!

  • ELN Audit Trail

    The CDD Vault Electronic Lab Notebook includes an audit trail of users’ activities within their ELN entries. This provides a record of major events organized in reverse-chronological order, including the user, timestamp, and a description for each event.

    To see the Audit Trail, select the “Audit Trail” button found in the header of your ELN entry.

    Clicking this will display a side panel that lists the events that have occurred within your ELN entry since its creation. Audit trail events are recorded on a per-minute basis.

    Identical activities that occur within 30 minutes of each other are summarized on a single row, with an option to reveal the details. You can export the entire audit trail to CSV at any time.
