Audit Trail Enhancements

With the Oct '21 release, the following enhancements have been made to audit tracking:

  • Ability to track instructor-led training (ILT)
  • Ability to capture training active status changes in audit reports
  • Ensuring user information is consistent in reports
  • Ensuring changes in training active status appear consistently

Tracking ILT Completions

Prior to this enhancement, training completions in the following case were tracked in other areas of the Cornerstone system, but they were NOT tracked in a user's transcript audit report:

  • A user completes a session and is marked complete when an administrator or instructor submits the instructor-led training (ILT) roster

With this enhancement, this training completion scenario has been added to audit trail functionality, and data from this scenario is included in users' transcript audit reports.

Capture Training Active Status Changes

Prior to this enhancement, if a future deactivation date was set for a training item in the Course Catalog, and then the Active status was changed for the training item, this change was not captured by the audit report.

With this enhancement, if a future deactivation date is set for a training item in the Course Catalog and then the Active status is changed for the training item, this change to the Active status is captured by the audit report. This enhancement is not retroactive and only applies to changes made to the Active status following the Oct '21 release.

User Information Consistency

Prior to this enhancement, it was not always clear which system user made status changes to users' training, due to lack of consistency in the information included in audit reports.

With this enhancement, the following information is presented about the system user who made status changes to users' training:

  • User last name
  • User first name
  • Username
  • Globally unique identifier (GUID)

This allows administrators to use audit reports to see exactly which system users were responsible for changes to training status.

Active Status Consistency

Prior to this enhancement, it was not always easy for administrators to see how the training status had changed, due to some ambiguous wording in audit reports.

With this enhancement, audit reports now display From and To columns to clearly display what status the training changed from and what status the training changed to (i.e. the training changed from Active to Inactive).
