This is a condensed view of the Events view logs. It is controlled with the same privileges as the Events view, so if the user has no events privileges, no events window will display here. Otherwise, the window will display all events for the enterprise or all events, depending on the user's role, privileges and scope.

Click on an event to open the event in a popup.
