Recharge customers have a history log that details all events and actions taken on their customer record. This can include actions such as skipping an order, updating credit card information, canceling a subscription, and much more. This guide provides information on where to find action logs and understand your customers' actions.

Customer-specific actions are available through the History View in the merchant portal.
- Select Customers from the merchant portal.
- Search for the customer you would like to view. Select the customer by clicking on their name.

Recent updates to the history view include:

- Infinite scrolling to view more events
- Improved readability and fixed issues with duplicate events appearing in the log
- Email address of the admin who performed the action
