changes made to a job in real time, from the date of your choice or from the date the job was created. It is a running log of every change, including the type of change, the affected bid items, the date and time the change was made and by whom. It also tells you the old value before anything was changed, the new value, and the overall change to the system.


SETTING UP AN AUDIT

To begin auditing your active job, go to the Security menu and click Audit Trail. This opens the Job Audit Trail Options window, which shows you the job’s bid date and time, its current total, and provides different options for setting up the audit.

The easiest way to start an audit is by clicking on the green Start auditing at current date and time button to the right of the Time field. If you wish to begin on a future day and time, then you can use the calendar and clock tools to make your selection.
