History is available in both, Classic and Smart Projects. It should help you answer the question, what has happened to the project while you were away?
There are 4 areas where history is captured: clients, vendors, quotes and projects. Select the ones which are critical to your operations and that need to be monitored. Bear in mind that the gathering of such background data may slow down the system a little bit. Also, the history is stored for a maximum of one year, but you may decide for a monthly cleanups.
All history entries can be removed by just a mouse click on Purge History button, so be careful who has access to this area of the system.
