Reviewing the Activity Log

The Activity Log can be used to review the history of major activities associated with a school entity's data collection forms and to add correspondence items capturing information exchange events that may have occurred outside of SAMS that a user wants to keep track of (e.g. a phone call).  SAMS automatically generates activity log records when certain events occur, such as when the status of a form set changes and when automated e-mail notifications are sent to users of the system.  To review the Activity Log, follow these steps:

 

1.Select the Activity Log item from the SAMS main menu.

2.(Optional) Filter the information presented to you in the Activity Log by selecting your filter preferences from the available drop-down boxes and then clicking on the Apply Filter button.
