Every change in Laboperator is tracked and time-stamped. The Audit Trail logs show therefore any activity made by users or the system itself. Currently, two different versions of an Audit Trail are available in Laboperator. 


To access the new version, you need to select Audit Trail, whereas for the older version you need to select Activities. To transition easier, the older version will be available in parallel until the next major release v4.0 approx. mid of February. In the following, you will find a description of the newer version of the Audit Trail. If you want to see the documentation for the old Audit Trail, please click here
