Audit Options

The audit options determine when new records of changes are added to the HQ Master Audit (HQMA) database table. For example, if you change a setting on the company parameters form, the system creates a new record of the change in the HQMA table.

You can view records in the HQMA table using the HQ Audit Detail report in the HQ module. See About Viewing the Master Audit Log for more information about viewing audit records in the HQMA table.

The following lists and describes the audit options.

  • Company Parameters – This audit option is display only, and is always checked. Any changes made to the SL Company Parameters form are tracked in the Master Audit file.

  • SL Entry/Change Orders – SL Subcontract Entry (header and items), SL Change Order Entry

Note: Audit records are not written to HQMA for subcontracts/SL change orders purged via SL Purge.
  • SL Compliance – Select this box to record additions, deletions, and changes made to compliance codes using the SL Compliance form, as well as compliance codes initialized to a subcontract based on the job’s default compliance group, or added/deleted via AP Vendor Compliance.

Note: Audit records will not be generated for compliance code changes due to purging subcontracts.
Note: When setting up a company, the entry of invalid data in certain fields causes a warning; however, entries are allowed and the record can be saved. This primarily applies to (but it not limited to) required data such as the “interface to” companies and journals, since it is sometimes necessary to set up the company information before setting up the data being requested.
