@CaitVirtue this sounds like a good question for Giant Rabbit... if they say "there isn't," we can define what your ask is.

@CaitVirtue: I'm going to use this as the tracking task for "Civi change log sucks" that you mentioned last week.

Things we want:

  • Change log should say exactly what was changed.
  • Many activity lines say that the donor did the changing, when it was actually a Civi admin. The admin's name should be the one that we surface.

Bringing this into sprint as it is to be resolved in this week's deploy

@DStrine Can we review together. I'm only seeing the detailed changes for things that have happened very recently. Literally, all other changes appear to have been wiped out.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

For tips how to manage individual work in Phabricator (noisy notifications, lists of task, etc.), see for available options.
(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)
