Last Updated: Jun 24, 2022 16:43

Transaction Log

 Circulation > Circulation tab > Transaction Log subtab

The transaction log contains a history of everything that has occurred on your machine and most of the changes that are made through management, utilities, and importing. It will also record who has logged in to your workstation and performed certain transactions and changes. It can be a valuable document, if you want to examine any workstation's history.

If you're Self-Hosted, archived transaction logs are placed in the Log folder, located in Alexandria's shared application support folder.
