Proposal Management: View Details of Changes


When a change is made to a PAF or its attached documents (in any state except Proposal Preparation), the details of the change are recorded and made available in a change log. A separate change log is created for each change made.

The change log contains:

  • Name of person who made the change (author)
  • Content or type of change (activity)
  • Date and time of change


Role: PI & Project Team > PAF Workspace

Step-by-Step Process

  2. View each change made (Activity) in its own change log line.
    Note When making changes, changes on different pages are logged on separate change log lines.
  3. View the name of person who made the change (Author).
  4. View the time and date of change (Activity Date).
  5. To view the details of a change, click Change Log.

  • Logged for (PAF) - PAF Project Title (as entered in section 1.1 of the PAF worksheet).
  • Activity Date - Time and date that the author submitted the change.
