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. 

Good to know: The Create Audit Fields feature only applies to standard audit fields.
