What is Transaction Record Info
Transactional data records a time and relevant reference data needed for a particular transaction record. It is also referred to as an audit trail of information which can be used to verify what happened to an entry.
In Connected, this includes both the standard info like date, time, and the name of the user that added and/or modified a record, and more enhanced information such as edited, closed, and deleted entries.
Standard and Enhanced Record Info
The Standard "Record Info" button is in all Connected screens that create entries which affect General Ledger. Some examples of these screens are Account Invoices, Purchases, Cash Receipts, and Payments (aka Checks). When the info button is clicked a message will appear displaying the date, time, and the name of the user that added the entry that last modified the entry and that posted the entry.
The Enhanced “Record Info” button is used in Connected screens that are more likely to have many different modifications and/or actions. For example, the Sales Order and Purchase Order screens. The enhanced info button tracks each time the entry is edited, closed, deleted, and other various actions that are specific to the individual screen.
The Record Info button can be hidden for certain users, based on user password privilege.
