View change history

Access a full list of changes to data in your team, including when the change was made and by which user.

Overview

The Change history page provides a log of all changes made to data records within your team environment. There is no data-retention limit, so the data is available from when the feature was first introduced (or your system was created, if that happened after that point). The Change history feature is only available on the Skedulo Pulse Platform.

This feature makes use of the event store service, which can be accessed via the Change history API.

Inclusions

The change history page includes changes to the following data:

  • Standard data objects and custom objects (if applicable), including jobs, job allocations, shifts, shift offers, and resources.
  • Data changed by all users, including the following:
    • Changes made by resources using the mobile app
    • Changes to record access policies, roles, and users
    • Scheduling rule violations
  • Data changed by the system itself (this may happen, for example, when a job status automatically changes to Pending - Dispatch when sufficient resources have been allocated to it).

Exclusions

The following changes are not shown in the change history page:

  • Changes made in the Settings (other than users, roles, and record access policies)
  • Changes to the data model itself, for example adding or deleting custom objects or fields.

Delays

Note that there can be delays between a change being made and it showing up in the change history page. These are generally negligible, but can be up to 5 minutes.
