Viewing Audit Log Information
In the far right corner, you will see several options for changing what is displayed in the audit log as well as buttons for paging through the displayed actions. User actions may be displayed between any two dates, up to 3 months back.

The time display defaults to UTC, but may be changed to your local timezone by clicking on the menu next to the time header and choosing Local.
Changing Filter Criteria (Date and Keyword)
To change the date range for the displayed user actions, you will need to select dates in the From and To fields at the top right of the screen. Click on either the entry field or the calendar icon to select a date from the calendar.
