Duration of query recent changes in Check user tool
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Hello,

Can we add the selected duration to the check user log?

For example, if I selected to check 0.0.0.0/16 recent changes in (last week or last two weeks or last 30 days or all), then in the log it'll appear like this:

03:40, 14 September 2018, alanajjar got users for 0.0.0.0/16 (reason)

So, I think it'll be better, if we add the duration, to be like this:

03:40, 14 September 2018, alanajjar got users in last week for 0.0.0.0/16 (reason)

Or

03:40, 14 September 2018, alanajjar got users for 0.0.0.0/16 (reason) - last 30 days

Benefits
It'll help to follow any CU abuse or misuse. As you know, if the duration changed then the results will changed too.
Also, I think every inputs in CU tool should appear in the log.


Is it controversial proposal? I think no.

So, to clarify, you want that when somebody checks an IP or user not for the whole standard duration but for a limited period of time (last week, last two weeks, etc.), the logs say so. Right?
