Setting Audit Trail on cabinet and folder

It must be noted that recording of events is done only on files and folders.

The purpose of setting audit trail on a cabinet or a folder is to have a default audit trail settings for all the documents that are imported in it.

The procedure for setting the audit trail on cabinets and folders is similar to that of files.

There is an additional check box  'Inherit these vales for sub folders and files'. When selected, it sets the currently selected options in audit setting to all the files and sub folders existing in that cabinet/folder


Setting Audit Trail on individual documents

Audit trail can be set on a document from the Audit Settings tab in Properties dialog box.


You can inherit audit permissions from the parent folder. A parent folder is the Docsvault object directly above it in the hierarchy. You can break an inheritance chain by customizing the settings. Customize option allows you to set the setting as per your requirement. You can save the time by selecting predefined Audit Trail settings From Template.
