You can configure the portal to enable default auditing. The system will then audit transactions involving all entities, such as folders, assets, and tasks.
A user can view an audit report by selecting an entity and viewing the audit history. 
To enable auditing, navigate to the System > Settings folder, select Default Auditing Setting s and click the Edit Settings option in the bottom right.

Example

In the example, we will configure the portal to enable auditing.
We begin by navigating to the folder System > Settings . In the folder data panel in the Entity Name list, we click Default Auditing Settings .
In the Entity Actions menu in the lower right, we select Edit .

In the Edit Default Audit Settings pop-up, select the Enabled checkbox. Determine the desired Process setting:

InTransaction - all the updates are stored in the same transaction.
Queued - The updates do not share transaction of main update; they are updated very quickly, but in a different transaction. (If data integrity is primary, then doing InTransaction is best.)

The Reporting checkbox, when enabled, will capture who ran a report and the report name. The Security checkbox, when enabled, will capture user logins and logouts.

Select Save . The system will now audit all entity transactions automatically. To see the data introduced, create a new report and select the Audited Entities data source.
