What I am trying to do is see who is making changes to my QB app. I need a few people in the system to add and take way orders from a table.

I was wondering if there is away to monitor who is delete people off my list?

The best native solution is to set up an email notification and have them auto filed in Outlook or some mail system like gmail. Then you can look back and see who made changes. If it was mission critical there are good third party tools to do this, but that is likely overkill for your needs.

Do you know any third party applications?

I think it's "MCF" but I will look for a link when I get s chance. They are listed as a partner if you google QuickBase Partners

This application has two tables Moles1 and Moles2. When you delete a Mole form one table it is logged to the other. Now you hopefully have a more serious application but this application demonstrates how you can intercept record deletions in one table and log them to another.

FWIW, Trinity is using the image onload technique.

This requirement comes up quite a lot. Many of the previous comments are spot on about the e-mail notification method and there are some add-ons that will parse those e-mails and turn them into logs (our e-mail parsing tool is intended for other use cases but can address this as well).

We saw a need for these record-level logs but also administrative actions, especially in enterprise environments where heavy compliance is needed. I.e., who modified field properties, who changed a JavaScript page, when was this report last exported to CSV, etc. We have a tool to address this and can log nearly everything that occurs within a QuickBase application. Feel free to reach out if this is something you would like to discuss further. More information on this tool will be available on our new website which is launching in a couple of weeks.
