Audit Log


Cakey Bot has a very detailed feature-rich audit log, in addition to logging all of the events in the Events section below Cakey Bot also includes "Jump To" and "Perma-Link" features for some events. Audit Log not only logs highly detailed information for events but it can also log information for events that discord and most other bots don't log. For example, Cakey Bot logs both when a user boosts and when they quit boosting as well as permanent links for deleted images.

Enable/Disable Logging

In order to start logging you will need to designate a text channel as the log channel. You can do this by selecting a channel in the Web Dashboard on the "Audit Log" page. In order to disable logging, simply select "none" in the channel dropdown list.
Cakey Bot will need access to Send/Read messages in the channel you designate as the audit log.
