Our Knowledge Base covers a wide variety of technical topics, from the basic to the complex.
How can I track who changes a record, beyond the single "Last Modified By" built-in field, which only keeps track of the most recent edit?
While QuickBase only displays the name and a time/date stamp of the most recent person who has changed a record, you can use a text field with the append only option turned on to keep track of changes made to the record.
Step 1. Create a field of type 'Text - Multi-line'. The following link explains how to create a field.
Step 2. Enter the field properties for your new text field. The link below explains how to access a field's properties.
Step 3. Within the field properties, check the box called Log entries. The following link explains the display settings for this kind of field.
Step 4. Create a form rule to detect field changes when the record is saved, and write some information to the append-only field you created.
Congratulations! You now have a field that records the name with a time/date stamp of each person who has edited a record.
