Logging - tracking how many times a file is accessed

The eDocs system at UIS enables users to keep track of how many times a file is accessed and/or edited. This is done by enabling "logging" for an individual file (using the eDocs web interface). Once logging has been enabled, eDocs keeps a record of each access to the file - including the user's name, the date and time, and the IP address of the user.

Logging is very useful to verify that students are actually accessing the instructor's material on the eDocs server.
