    Hi King710,

    The "Former member" did not come back with any details. However, you can achieve your requirement using the database log mentioned by Mattguo. Also take the note of a possible performance impact and you need to clean-up the logs to prevent too much database growth.

    Was there ever a conclusion on this?  It is very common for Orders to be changed.  Grant it the first thing to look is why are orders being changed so frequently and the goal is to minimize that.

    Is there a quick solution to this?  Where a user can view an audit trail of changes to orders and the user who changed the order, Type of change, date, quantity. etc.  Thanks!

    Hi Bala S,

    The database log can do that but it can affect your system performance because it is not intented to be used on transactional data. If you want to use it test it carefully before applying it in live.

    What I am more interested in is why do you need that information? Do you really check subsequently who change the qty? If so, you just get a time stamp and the user who made the change but not a reason why this has been done. Can you explain a bit about the background of this requirement?

    Best regards,

    Hi Bala,

    You can use database log to trace the specific fields change, and please select the specific fields instead of all fields. Please refer to this blog:

    Or you can also create alert to monitor the specific fields change.
