The Setup Audit Trail History helps you track the recent changes in the backend of Rethink that you and other administrators have made to your organization. This can be especially useful in organizations with multiple administrators. Only Administrators can view a Setup Audit Trail.


First, go to Setup > enter View Setup Audit Trail in the Quick Find box, then select View Setup Audit Trail:



To download your org’s complete setup history for the past 180 days, click Download. After 180 days, setup entity records are deleted.


The history shows the 20 most recent setup changes made to your org. It lists the date of the change, who made it, and what the change was. If an internal user (like an admin or support representative) makes a setup change on behalf of an end-user, the other user's name column shows the internal username. For example, if a user grants login access to an admin and the admin makes a setup change, the admin’s username is listed.
