Overview of Record Logs

The aACE record log tracks important updates to a given record. This includes edits to quantities on orders, updates to scheduling in the calendar, user comments, automatic status changes from interconnected records, and more. All personnel with access to the record can view what has been done in the Log Viewer. aACE's thorough tracking enhances visibility on business operations, making it simple to answer questions about who did what and when. For an example of how this functionality can help your team, read our feature highlight.
