Kavi® Members Help
The Full Activity Log tool is used by administrators to create customized views of the Full Activity Log, where all changes to the Kavi Members database are automatically recorded. Log entries include when the change occurred, who initiated the change, which fields were affected and the new field values. The Full Activity Log is highly detailed and technical, so use this tool when the information you require is not available through other, more user friendly, Kavi Members logs and reports tools.

The Full Activity Log differs from the Company and User Activity Logs in the following ways:
The Full Activity Log shows the data object, or skin, that was changed, rather than the specific user or company whose information changed.
The Full Activity Log shows the new values of changed fields.
The Full Activity Log tool offers search capabilities that are not available with other tools, such as the ability to search by item key.
Set any of the optional fields to refine the search criteria. To view all available information in the Full Activity Log, leave the search fields set to the defaults.
- After This Time
Use this field to set a point in time. The Full Activity Log will include only those changes logged after the time specified.
- Before This Time
Use this field to set a point in time. The Full Activity Log will include only those changes logged before the time specified.
The time fields can be used together to specify a bounded time range beginning at the time set in the After This Time field and ending at the time set in the Before This Time field.
- Who Initiated Action
Specify a username to search by the user initiating the change.
- What Action Was Taken
Specify an action to search for changes of a specific type (e.g., 'added,' 'edited,' 'deleted,' 'email') or the name of a specialist (i.e., the DataSkin that performs the kind of action that you are trying to locate in the log).
- Action Details
Specify an action detail to search for changes related to that detail (e.g., field name, field value, etc.). The search capabilities provided by this versatile field include the ability to search for email addresses, item key and myriad other details, including partial matches.

Frequently there will be more than one entry (or lines in the report) for a single user or company created at the same time. This indicates the data change affected more than one database table. Many Members tools change data in multiple tables simultaneously. For instance, the Edit a Company tool can change information in both the Company database table and Address database table.
Because the Full Activity Log can be extremely long, the length of the results table is limited to 1000 lines or records. If you have reason to believe that your search results may exceed this limit, try setting more restrictive search criteria.
The report displays the following columns:
The date and time of the change.
- Who Initiated Action
The username of the user initiating the change. The username 'system' indicates an automated or uploaded change. If this is 'Anonymous User,' the change was made from a publicly accessible page.
The type of activity, the database table and the unique item key identifying the data object affected by the change.
The names of fields affected by the change and the new field values.
