Audit log

Audit log - hero
In this Article

Your workspace audit log gives Workspace owners access to detailed information about security and safety-related activity. This can include identifying potential security issues, investigating suspicious behavior, and troubleshooting access.


  • Open the Settings & Members menu in your left sidebar.

  • Select Audit log.

The following information is included in each event recorded by the audit log:

  1. User: This is the Notion user who performed the event

  2. Event: This is the event captured. 

  3. Date: This is the date the event occurred

Where available, the IP address is also included.

Note: The audit log feature is exclusive to workspaces on the Enterprise Plan. If you upgrade to an Enterprise Plan, audit log events are recorded starting from the time of upgrade. Prior events will not be included in the audit log.

  • Select the blue Export button at the top right of the audit log screen.

  • You'll see four different export date range options. You can choose to export up to one year of audit log data.

  • Once you select your preferred date range, you will see a notification letting you know that an email will be sent to you with the audit log file download link.

Note: An exported audit log will show all applicable events within the chosen date range, up until 2 hours before the export time.
