Office 365 & SharePoint Audit Reports

In this video, we’ll take a look at how you can make sense of SharePoint Audit Logs through a clear display with Sharegate’s Audit report.

When it comes to understanding how your users are using your SharePoint environment, or simply to keep track of its history, the SharePoint Audit Log is usually there to help. BUT it can be pretty tedious to get the exact information you’re looking for.


With Sharegate’s Audit report, it couldn’t be easier. The Audit report can be run both from the Reporting section or the Explorer. Since it is using SharePoint’s audit log to harvest the data, make sure to activate the auditing on your SharePoint sites and OneDrive for business to maximize the results.

Before launching the report, Sharegate will give you the option to filter the data by users, time range, and event types so you can specify what information you’d like to see. Once done, you can either run the report right away, or schedule it.

This way, you could schedule a weekly report of all permission changes in an environment or, get a monthly report of items that were deleted, edited, checked-in and checked-out.

When Sharegate is done gathering the data, it will display the date and time of the events, the users, what they have done, and of course, where it happened. Then if you want to take a closer look at the data, or send it to the right person, you can always export the data to Excel or CSV.

As you can see, Sharegate makes monitoring and auditing your SharePoint environment easier than ever.
