Understanding the Activity Timeline

Akord timeline 2x

How the Activity Timeline Works

Every node in the timeline represents an event that has been taken in your data room. Each event is end-to-end encrypted and recorded on the Akord blockchain – a cryptographically immutable ledger of events. If we were ever hacked, there would be no way a cyber criminal could alter the events in your data room.

Every new event is added on to the timeline, so much like a messenger app like WhatsApp you’ll see the most recent events at the bottom of the screen.

Every key event is recorded, so not only document uploads and messages but also events like sending out invites or renaming files. In processes that stretch out over long periods of time, this gives people the ability to go back and resolve any disputes or confusion over events.

Encrypted Messages

The bar along the bottom of the screen is where you can post encrypted messages to everyone invited to the data room. Instead of relying on email to co-ordinate and collaborate, keep all your communication in an encrypted secure context by using this feature.

Filtering the Activity Timeline

The longer your data room has been up and running the longer your activity timeline will get. This is when filtering will help you display a more focused view and answer specific questions you may have.

The filter icon is found in the top right of the screen and opens out a side panel with several options. You can filter by any of the specific actions that have been recorded or by a period of time. For example, you could filter the timeline to display just the file uploads, or only events that occurred in the last 7 days. You can also chain options together, so you could display just file uploads within the last 7 days.
