What Benefits Will You See?

Why bother with this new feature? What kind of info will you be able to get from the log? See how this update will help your planning.

You’ll know be able to:

  • See when users logged in

Need to make sure your team is checking their plans? With the log update you can now see the time and date that users last logged in. Or if they are logged in currently. This is denoted by the green signal after the login date.

Having this info is great for your remote and hybrid teams. Because even if you aren’t all in the office, you can still ensure that everyone’s up to date on the latest version of the plans.

Because now you’ll be able to clearly see when changes were made, and by whom. With the “whens” and “whos” in place, you can more easily track down the “why.” As well as make more accurate plans for the future.
