Timeline

Timeline

The Timeline in a record captures the updates done to that record and its related records. With this you can see the history of activities associated with an entity (Contacts, Companies, etc).

The timeline of the Parent entity's record will display chronologically the changes done to the record of a Parent entity and to its Related records. A timeline can be viewed in the following Parent entity's records (refer to the table below).

Parent Entity
Related Entities
Contacts
  Companies

When you make changes to a Parent entity's record, the following happens:
  1. The change is recorded in the timeline of the Parent entity record
  2. The change is recorded in the timeline of the related entity records
E.g., when Asset details are updated, the timeline in the Assets (Parent) module as well as its related module, Contacts get updated with the change.
