Kavi Edit Help
The Organization Editor can use the Editor Activity History tool to create customized views and reports of editor-related activity for troubleshooting or reporting purposes, including the time that the action occurred, who initiated the action and the type of activity (e.g., adding a page, saving pages to the live site, and locking or unlocking pages.

Set any of the optional fields to refine your search criteria, then click the Display Report button. If you set multiple criteria, the search will return results that match all your search criteria. For faster searches, set the criteria to return the narrowest set of results that give you the information you need. To see all possible information, you may leave the fields set to the defaults, but the search will take longer.
- After This Time
Use this field to set a point in time. The Editor Activity History will include only those changes logged after the time specified.
- Before This Time
Use this field to set a point in time. The Editor Activity History will include only those changes logged before the time specified.
The time fields can be used together to specify a bounded time range beginning at the time set in the After This Time field and ending at the time set in the Before This Time field.
- Who Initiated Action
Use this field to search for changes initiated by a particular user, identified by username.
- Activity Type
Set this value to search for changes with a specific Activity Type. A simple operation such as adding a new page could use all four activities: locking the parent page, adding the new page, unlocking the parent page, then saving as live. For this reason, you may want to leave this search field set to the default 'All Activity Types'.
- Adding file
Set this if you only want to see what new files have been added.
- Adding KPage
Set this if you only want to see what new pages have been added.
- Adding NavNode
Set this if you only want to see what new NavNodes have been added.
- Deleting Object
Set this if you only want to see objects (e.g., kpage, file or image) that have been deleted.
- Discarding Change
Set this if you only want to see what changes have been discarded. This happens when an editor selects 'Discard Changes' when saving on the Finish Session tab.
- Editing Content
Set this if you only want to see content edits.
- Locking Page
Set this if you only want to see which pages have been locked and who locked them. For example, if an editor wants to edit pages that have been locked by another user, use this in conjunction with the 'After This Time' date field to find out which editor currently has a session lock on these pages.
- Renaming Object
Set this if you only want to see objects (e.g., kpage, file or image) that have been renamed.
- Saving as Live
Set this if you want to see what pages have gone live. You could use this in conjunction with the date fields to find out which pages went live in a specific time period.
- Unlocking Page
Set this if you only want to see which pages have been unlocked. For example, if you wanted to be sure that a specific set of page locks had been removed before an editor went on holiday, you could set this value then add the editor's username to the 'Who Initiated Action' field to find out whether this user's locks had been released. However, if you wanted to see all this user's locks and check whether they had all been released, you'd have to leave this field set to the default 'All Activity Types', and set just the date and username.
- Versioning a NavNode
Set this if you only want to see which NavNodes have been versioned. A new version of a NavNode is created whenever the display order changes during an editing session.
- Versioning a Page
Set this if you only want to see which pages have been versioned. A new version of a page is created whenever a page that has gone live is edited. The edited version remains in existence until the end of the editing session. When the session ends this page goes live if the edits are accepted, or is deleted if the edits are rejected.
Your Editor Activity History is displayed according to the search criteria you provided. You may view the report online or download it as a CSV file that can be viewed through any spreadsheet application.
The report displays the following columns:
- Number Symbol
The number symbol represents the order in which the activity occurred.
The date and time that the activity occurred. By default, activities are displayed in reverse chronological order with the most recent entry at the top of the list. You can reverse this order by clicking the column heading.
- Who Initiated Action
The username of the editor who initiated the change.
- Activity Type
As described in the previous section on the Activity Types search option.
The path to the pages affected by the action. If a new page was added, this is the new page. If this is a page lock, this is the top-level locked page.
This contains notes about the change, such as the new name of a renamed object.
