#1156 More detailed change log(s) of changes

John Smith

It is nice to have the changelog in the administrator section, but at the same time if multiple administrators are approving things there doesn't appear to be a way to tell what was changed besides something has been changed for a given record. I've unfortunately stumbled upon a few times where a change is approved by accident and of course unless you have a backup you no longer have the original information.

Also with this the changes users are able to see through blocks or reports only show which record has been changed. It would be useful if you could see a brief description of what was changed in the block and reports. Such as when a census record is added, modified, deleted the block would print out "add census" or "modify census", In the case of modification show what the modification was when clicked on.

I know the above would add to the size of the database greatly so I'd suggest admin option for time limits of retention of information =)

    Can we also establish a LOG CENTRAL at the same time. Previously submitted as an RFE and perhaps to be included in the CA-New INDI test branch with the revised ADMIN layout.

    I'm working on changes to the logging. Code is mostly written, but, it is dependant on various other changes (e.g. moving gedcom data to the DB and restructuring the users table), which is dependent on other things, etc.

    I'm also working on changes to the way we store changes (at fact level, rather than record level), but this has lots of other dependent changes.....
