    Hi 5pm team,

    Is this viewed by admin account(s) only?
    Or log access is built based on per records permission for each user?
    Can regular user restore his/her own tasks?

    These are maintenance links, not really intended to be used bu the regular users. Only Administrators can access them at this point.

    Is this as simple as pasting the one the links above? Do I need to be signed in as administrator?

  • 5pm TeamNo Gravatar July 20, 2011, 4:05 pm

    Yes, but you have to replace your name in it. And yes, you have to be an administrator.

    I’m putting my name in the account name area for the link and copying and pasting but it’s only taking me to the 5pm home page. I would like more instructions about how to do this please- I am an Admin on the account. thank you

    Kristian > You would have to contact 5pm support for that. We don’t expose use ID in the interface.

    These logs are not an official feature – just an internal tool we use. But our clients found it useful when they need to find out who deleted something, or even restoring it.

    We are considering making it more user friendly and release it as a feature, possibly.

    This is a great tool and it has saved us a lot of time as we are teaching our staff to use 5pm. Are there any logs that give the ability to undo changes other than deleted tasks? One of our staff deleted a tag that we are using and I am wondering if there is any way to undo that change or if we will have to manually add the tag back to the 100+ tasks that it was assigned to. (I understand if that’s not an option, but thought I would check first.)


  • 5pm TeamNo Gravatar January 7, 2013, 11:47 am

    No, there is no option to undo the deleting of tags (initially we did not even allow the deletion of tags from the global list).
    The only thing we can do for you is to restore your tototal backup from the night before, but you will lose any changes made after that.
