How to check if a user has communicated externally

The audit trail within the Admin Portal can help you quickly identify whether a user has communicated externally with another user via Symphony. For example, this evidence may be required to investigate concerns or resolve disputed testimony about communication with external contacts. 


Check if a user has communicated with external contacts by following these steps: 

1. In Symphony, select the Settings icon (Figure 1):

Note: Session Objective and Comments are optional fields and are not required to access the Admin Portal.
