In this video, we’ll talk about the Salesforce Setup Audit Trail feature and how to start using it. The Setup Audit Trail tracks setup changes made between admins. This is an ideal troubleshooting tool if you’re seeing errors from a recent change, and is especially ideal if there are multiple system administrators in your org. In order to access the Setup Audit Trail, make sure that you have the View Setup and Configuration permission enabled. To get to the Setup Audit Trail, follow these steps:

1. Navigate to Setup.
2. In the Quick Find box, type View Setup Audit Trail.
3. On this page, you’ll be able to view the last 20 changes made for your org, including the date and the user. Select the download link to download the trail for the last six months in an Excel .csv file.

Keep in mind that Salesforce will only store the last six months of your org’s setup audit trail data. Also, note the Salesforce documentation,
which lists all of the activities the Setup Audit Trail will track.
