Overview

The Audit Log allows merchants to monitor activities undertaken by their teams to minimize the risk of fraudulent actions, money laundering actions, or actions that might cause reputational or any other damage.

For this purpose, an Audit Log report is introduced.

The Audit Log is a record that displays the merchant's team's actions within the Verifone Central dashboard. The Audit Log report shows the activities performed by a user that results in data change.

Audit Logs are useful whether you want to manage cases, perform user activity analysis, or conduct a specific survey.

Availability

Only users with a Merchant Supervisor role can access the Audit Log section in Verifone Central. Events are recorded only when the users are logged in to Verifone Central.
