    Hi Mohammad.Since the Audit Trails module is based on table triggers inserted into the Company Database…does it work with transactions created / updated by eConnect?(I'm too lazy to install a version and test!! so taking the easy option and asking around if anyone has verified this).

  3. I never tested this! But logically yes it should log any kind of operations as it is monitoring the tables at the SQL level.

    If I delete a user in GP, does the audit information remain, or does it get deleted too?
