Is there a way to make the 'History' uneditable?

Hi,

 

We have ACT! Premium 2008. It seems the 'History' can be edited. Even the date/time of the history record can be changed.

 

Is there a way to disable this manual edit function for the history? Or at least in the 'Record History' window, disable the date/time chooser and alwasy use the current system time instead?

 

Thanks a lot in advance.

From Tools, Preferences, on the General Tab, unselect "Allow History Editing".

Re: Is there a way to make the 'History' uneditable?

Thank you Neil for the reply. It does solve part of my issues.

 

But I can still manually add a history record and assign any date for the newly created history.

 

For example, i can create a history on Feb 3rd but put Jan 1st as the date of the history. After the record has been created, it looks like the record was generated on Jan 1st. But this is not true.

 

Is there a way to prevent the change of the date when creating a history record? Or are there any logs that can help me distinguish the records 'faked' in a later date?

 

Thanks a lot for the help!

I figured it out i thinkSmiley Happy

 

I can turn on the column to show the creation date for the records. So it is very clear which records are 'faked'.
