ActionTracker Archive Listing

The ActionTracker (AT) Archive listing is a collection of completed action items only. Each user has their own Archive Listing of items that they have archived.  Purging  archived items from their Archive table will not affect any other AT user in the user group.


The AT Archive has limited functions, including: searching, sorting/filtering in a read-only mode. All items are locked and do not allow users to make changes. Action item are required to be  re-opened  by a user with AT Admin Rights before any changes can be made.

 Exports your action items to MS Excel. This works in conjunction with the Quick Filters including you custom filter (Manage Filter) which will export only those action items in the selected filter.


This dropdown allows you to toggle your action items between their unique Action ID or by IP Address. Using IP address allows you to group action items from the same IP Address which would allow you to see anonymous issues coming from the individual or company.


The Show Only works in conjunction with the Show By option to display action items based on either a single or range of action items. e.g. For Action ID if you input 286* (*=wildcard) and press the funnel icon, it will show only action items (including copied items) 286, 286.1, 286.2 etc. For IP Address 75.23* would show all IPs that start with 75.23.


Input any key word to search across all action items in your ActionTracker or your AT Archive listing.


The Quick Filter By bar lets you quickly filter your ActionTracker Archive by their status.


Manage Filters allows you to filter based upon multiple combinations.
