Record Statistics

Each record in Collect! stores unique statistical information about the record itself, such as when it was created, who last modified it and the history of any changes made to the record (if you have enabled change logging.)


Record Statistics

These record statistics are very useful for troubleshooting and for restoring old data to any of the record's fields, if needed. However, if an entire record was deleted, you can only restore it through Change History Settings. Please refer to Restoring Data from Change Logs for more information.

To view the Record Statistics for any record in your database, simply Right click in a grey area of the current form and select STATISTICS from the side menu that is displayed.
