Add changelog field on each check

We are a decent sized company split across two timezones. It can be hard to keep up with why X person changed Y check. It would be nice if we could turn auditing on so that check changes cannot be made without adding a line to the changelog. The changelog of course would have to exist first. Currently I have to reuse the text field (attached) and to be honest it isn't really working for me because of a few reasons. 1) This field is used in Pagerduty 2) This field is general purpose, so it's freetype. A changelog function would make you select a reason from a drop-down, let you type notes & then automatically log your login ID against it. 3) The field can of course be amended without any auditing I think auditing should be an account-wide thing and it would help the product appeal more to an enterprise market, or simply sectors where this has to be recorded.

    The Journal (available for Customer Admins) feature has been released in 7.9 (2015-11-24). It shows all changes that has been made to a check, when the changes were made and by whom. It does however not cover the functionality of adding a reason for changes or adding notes. Let me know if the Journal covers your needs.
