Abstract

A method is described to display a list of audit information associated with a document. The information includes: when a document was entered or removed from a specific folder, who performed the action, and who authorized the action. Similar capability is provided for folders. A folder of information can be thought of as a collection of information similar to a folder in a filing cabinet. It is important to maintain records auditing the use and control of the information within the folder as well as the folders.
