View Audit Log
Audit log displays the activities performed by users in your organization with the CRM account. Users in the Administrator Profile or CEO Role can access the audit logs. However, other users can only view their own and their sub-ordinates' audit Logs.
To view Audit Logs
Log into your Zoho CRM account.
Go to Setup > Data Administration > Audit Log. The Audit Log page displays all the actions performed by all users for the last 60 days.
Since the Audit Log is quite exhaustive, it could be tiresome to sift through the entries if you are looking for a few specific details. For example, if you wish to see only the records added by a particular user or a list of actions performed in the last 7 days, it could be difficult to find those specific entries among a huge list. In such a case, you can use the Filter options offered to you and narrow down on the entry or entries you are looking for.
To filter the entries in the Audit Log page
