  • Show in Stream what exactly was updated by a user in a Field

    Hello!


    Is there a possibility to show in Stream what exactly was updated by a user in a Field Contents?


    Usually it looks like:

    « Admin updated this (Entity name)

    (Name of the field that was updated)

    (Time)»

    Like so:​

    How would it look:

    « Admin updated this (Entity name)

    (Name of the field that was updated), From: (Previous contents of the Entity) -> To: (Updated contents of the Entity)

    (Time)»

    Like so:​

    How can we implement this?


    Buy an Extension? (I have not seen one fitting this issue)
    Write code/Plugin?


    Thank You all for wonderful documentation and wishing you well!​

    You have to enable the “Audited” option for the field you wish to have the change saved in the stream.

      This option is already enabled for this Field. It shows which field was edited, at which time.
      My question was about the history of the fields contents.

      (Small remark: the first screenshot is how it is now; and the second screenshot is how it supposed to be, I edited it manually to better explain my idea)

    I do get the field history, maybe it doesn’t work for certain field types.

    also update to latest version to get a better interface for updates.

      Hi!

      Espocrm version: 7.2.7


      Here is what is in the Entity file for this field:

      ...
      "description": {
      "type": "text",
      "audited": true
      },
      ...

    Think you doing something wrong. See my screenshot, with Description it is a bit funny looking.

      Hello!

      The same goes for any "text" value apparently.

      Despite:
      ...
      "description": {
      "type": "text",
      "audited": true
      },
      ...


      But Varchar works just fine

      Doesn't look like text and WYSIWYG field support it at the moment. You would need to feature request or edit the code yourself.
