Audit logUpdated 16 days ago

Audit logs is, in general, a document that records all events in the information technology system. In the sense of customer support, it is a chronological set of records that provides documentary evidence of activities that have been undertaken by support agents.

How it works

Audit Log tracks change even by multiple admins and record what action was performed, so you are always informed what happens within your team and what is the exact workflow for each ticket.

Setup instructions

In Gorgias, Audit Logs is under Settings>Users and Teams. It could be filtered out by Team Member, Event, or period of time.

The longest period of time you can pull it for is a week.


Here, you can see options that are enabled in the All events drop-down. 

All events listed will also show a time and date when the event occurred, as well as the name of the agent that made the event happen. If you are seeing "No user", that means that the event was most likely triggered automatically, by a rule, macro or an integration action.

Here, we will elaborate a bit on the events and what they represent.

All events menu provides "created", "updated" or "deleted" option for all possible events that might take place in your account.

The events account created, account updated and account deactivated will show you an event for the moment you have created your account, updated it, or deactivated it.

They show all events that can take place in regards to a customer in Gorgias. You will see an event and customer number each time a customer has been created, updated, merged or deleted from the account.

Integration created, integration updated, integration deleted events will take place any time an integration (such as email, Shopify, Facebook, or any other) has been created, updated or deleted, and you will be able to see the Integration number as well, which you can use to further check what is the integration in question.

The events macro created, macro deleted and macro updated will show you a time when any macro has been created, updated or deleted from the help desk, as well as the ID number of the macro in question.

Rule created, deleted, updated, or suggestion created event will allow you to see any events that took place in regards to your rules, as well as the user that triggered the events.

Tag-related events will show you ID numbers and the timestamps of when certain tags were created, deleted or merged.

Team-related events, such as "created", "deleted" and "updated" will show you any events taking place in regards to Teams. When and by whom was a certain team created, deleted or updated in any way.

Ticket-related events account for around 50% of audit logs, so we will make sure to explain them all in detail:

- Ticket assigned event will take place when a ticket has been assigned to an agent or a team.

- Ticket closed event will take place any time a ticket has been closed (if a ticket is closed multiple times, each of those times will create an event)
