GPTip42day - Activity Tracking

If you need to track certain user activities in GP such as master data creation or transaction posting activity, use Activity Tracking to do so.

Administration>Setup>System>Activity Tracking

To turn on Activity Tracking, select the Activity Type, place a checkmark in the Activity, select User(s) and place a checkmark in the appropriate Company(s).

You can track multiple activities but beware that the Activity Tracking table can grow very large in a short period of time if many activities are tracked.  Therefore, turn  tracking on for only those activities that are essential and clear the table on a regular basis via Administration>Utilities>System>Activity Detail.

Nice post, Frank - the Activity Tracking feature is very useful but doesn't get much coverage.
