History Logs provide history of all edits made to a Calendar by any Visitor to your Calendar with Edit Rights to the calendar. With the history log you can protect calendar data with real-time backups and recover a deleted calendar entry.
Use History Logs to see:
- Who changed a calendar entry
- What a calendar entry was before the change, and after the change
- When a calendar entry was changed
- Protect your calendar data with real-time backups of edits
- Recover a deleted calendar entry
- Monitor your staff's edits
