StoreHippo allows you to maintain a track of changes that were made to your store. It is sometimes necessary to keep track of what changes were made, and by whom. This is known as Audit Logging or an Audit Trail.
Following is the summary of a sample audit log record:

The action that was performed. The actions can be ADD, EDIT, DELETE etc.
The device of the user who made the change.

Searching audit logs
You can also search in your audit logs using the name of the entity. Provide the name of the entity in the search bar to view the search results.
It allows you to search the audit logs with more options. Click on the filter button on the search bar for the options: It will open a modal which asks for the field on which the filter is to be applied.
Select the field and enter the value for which you would like to search. Clicking on search will show you the logs for that particular criteria (In this case, records which were edited).
You can save the search so that you don't have to apply the filter again.
