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

    Your Reports List screen was Viewed by 73bit\sysadmin on 12th August 2016 at 12:52 AM

  • For row 2 in the above screenshot would read

    Your Reports Edit screen was Deleted by 73bit\sysadmin on 12th August 2016 at 12:52 AM

  • For row 3 in the above screenshot would read

    Your Brochure Edit screen was Updated by 73bit\sysadmin on 12th August 2016 at 10:52 AM

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.

Note

Delete actions would not have any links associated with it as that item has been deleted from the system and we cannot point to a deleted item. Also any previous history related to the deleted item would also not have any links as the item is not available.

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.
