Working with the Audit Trail

Monarch Classic keeps an Audit Trail of events in the Model and Project files.

The audit trail records the Author and the time, as well as changes to objects such as the settings, the creation, editing and deletion of templates, fields, filters, sorts, summaries, etc. The Audit Trail also shows you the changes you have made in the current Monarch Classic session, which will be saved when you save the Model or Project.

By design, Monarch Classic’s Audit Trail cannot be disabled.

Reviewing the Audit Trail

The Audit Trail can be viewed from the Home window.

The Audit Trail shows the following information:
