How to interpret the history displayed in the result table?

For example lets take help of the above screenshot to understand how to read results displayed in a tabular format.

  • For row 1 in the above screenshot would read

    TEMPLATE_XML List screen was ADD by 73bit\admin on 21st November 2019. It will show latest Action performed by user.

  • For row 2 in the above screenshot would read

    Configuration List screen was UPDATE by 73bit\azhar on 19th November 2019

How to exactly know which item has been modified using the screen mentioned in the output?

This screen displays that a report, participant, brochure… etc. has been worked upon but it does not show which is the exact report/participant/brochure was updated or viewed etc… for the exact same reason we have introduced links to screen names, these links will take you to the exact report/participants/brochure… etc. that was acted upon.

System did not return any data before 16th Aug 2016?

As the logging functionality was released on 16th August 2016, there will be no data available in the system before 16th August to be displayed in this screen. So any activity that was done after you received an email from Probench on 16th August 2016 release will be displayed on Activity Timeline screen.
