Setup Audit Trail tracks the recent setup changes that you and other admins have made to your org. Audit history is especially useful in orgs with multiple admins.
Available in: both Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience
Available in: Contact Manager, Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, Developer, and Database.com Editions
User Permissions Needed
To view audit trail history:
“View Setup and Configuration”
To view the audit history, from Setup, enter View Setup Audit Trail in the Quick Find box, then select View Setup Audit Trail. To download your org’s full setup history for the past 180 days, click Download link.
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 a delegate (like an admin or customer support representative) makes a setup change on behalf of an end user, the Delegate User column shows the delegate’s 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.
