Creating a custom audit field
|Knowledge Article Number||000005444|
|Description||You can mimic a standard Salesforce audit field by using a combination of Workflows, custom fields, and Field-Level Security.|
To create a custom audit field, you can use Field-Level Security to make a custom audit field 'read-only." You can then use a Workflow to automatically populate that field with the desired audit information. For example, when a record was created.
