An audit trail is a date and time-stamped record of the history and details around a transaction, document, or other event.
At Proof, an Audit Trail includes details of a transaction or a document:
Everyone with access to the document can access both of the audit trails.
Transaction-level Audit Trail
The transaction-level audit trail:
- Records actions related to the identity verification or notarization, if applicable:
- Identity examples: KBA, Credential Analysis
- Notarization examples: Notary placed a seal
- Can be viewed or downloaded from your Proof account.
Document-level Audit Trail
The document-level audit trail is more detailed than the transaction-level audit. Document-level audit trails are attached to individual documents and tamper-sealed with the final notarization for every document signed on the platform.
The document-level audit trail:
- Includes everything in the transaction-level audit (ID verification, seal placement, etc.).
- Records whatever happens to the document, including when you place, move, or delete fields.
- Is only available in Adobe Reader or Acrobat.
