    1. Open M-Files Admin.
    2. In the left-side tree view, expand an M-Files server connection.
    3. Expand Document Vaults.

    6. In the navigation area, click Advanced Vault Settings.
    7. Open the Configuration tab.
      Result:The advanced vault settings are shown.
  2. Expand Event Log.
  3. Select User Action Log.
  4. Change the value of the Enabled setting to Yes.
  5. Optional: Change the settings as required under the Event Settings node.
    See the descriptions of the settings by clicking the information icon next to each individual setting.

    Note: M-Files starts recording the events for all vault users that have logged out and logged back in after the settings were applied in M-Files Admin. You can log out all vault users by restarting the vault, but taking a vault offline should always be done in a controlled manner and the vault users should be notified beforehand.
The feature is now in use in the vault. Repeat the steps for any additional vaults that you want to be using this feature.
