The Hub Planner Audit log will provide the complete history log of any activity being performed in Hub Planner, by all users.

Benefits of having an Audit Log

So what are the benefits of having an audit log or trail? There are 3 main areas where the Hub Planner Audit Log can help. Security and Compliance as well as the ability to improve on the scheduling process.Audit_Log_Trail_Hub_Planner

Security –

In general, the audit log can improve the security around access and monitor levels of activity across Hub Planner. The audit logs will help security practices to assist in monitoring behavior. Not to mention the added protection for cybersecurity. The presence of an audit log will reduce the chances of manipulation of data and security breaches.

Compliance –

Nowadays with security and compliance being at the forefront of most softwares, I guess we’re ticking a lot of boxes for a log of existing customers and new ones too. Auditing activity logs is important and sometimes critical for compliance departments. Anything we can do with assisting the security efforts, we’re on top of that.

Insights to Inefficiencies –

Being able to assess and monitor every data change, activity behavior, why not utilize this data and use it to improve business practices, project management, resource scheduling. I mean yes it helps with security, but there are valuable insights here that we should capitalize on. Can we boost performance here? Increase accountability and eliminate inefficiencies. The audit log can help us identify steps within our scheduling process that may prove unnecessary. How can we improve our workflows and efficiencies?

Actions - Hub Planner Audit Log


From one of our customers:

We would like to be able to show resources what changes has happened in their Hub Planner schedule. We have some resources who go to work and come in the next day and see a lot of changes but they can’t explain why. When they ask resources themselves, nobody ever tells the truth about what changed and it leads to frustration in the team.

How does the Audit Log work exactly?

Within the Hub Planner Audit Log, we want to capture and detail the who, what, when and where of any updates. Audit_Log_Trail_Hub_PlannerWith every update to a project, resource or schedule or resource, the log entry will detail the date stamp, the user, the entities involved and the action made. Such details will display for users to scroll, sort and filter through against a selected date range. Customers will find valuable information from the audit log for security practices and compliance. But, it can also provide an insight into scheduling processes and habits maintained. Monitoring such details will perhaps allow you to identify inefficiencies in the scheduling process that you can improve on.

What will the Audit Log show?

There are a number of columns that Hub Planner will populate in the audit log. Listed below:

Type Description
Log Date When – The date of the entry in Hub Planner

With the first release of the Audit Log, we will endeavor to improve on what the audit log trail can do. For example, right now permissions are not scoped in the first release, perhaps in future releases this will be included. Happy to hear what else you would like to see. Maybe we can detail more actions, provide more insights into the happenings of changes and updates made in Hub Planner. Who logs in, when they logged in etc.


The Hub Planner Audit Log is a premium extension which Account Owners and Admins use to verify and track all kinds of behavior of the resource management and project scheduling process. The who, what, when and where. Whilst an audit log trail is often a regulatory requirement in many sectors, even when not mandated it can be a business best practice for companies. Not only that, we can use the audit log to assess the behaviors for review in the future.
