Activity Feed on Dashboard
There is no way for administrators to get a big picture of their member and administrators site activity. This causes situations where unwanted or mysterious changes (deleted pages, members,etc) happen that they are unable to track the action, sometimes not until it is too lare.
Provide a way for both clients and support to quickly review a textual history of site changes by administrators and members. And possibly a 'gadget' to broadcast member and or site activity out to members/public.
This could be accomplished by creating an activity feed on the dashboard. Similar to the news feed in Facebook, this would provide you with a summary of an action taken (page created/delete, contact created etc) along with who did it and when. You would also be able to filter this list so that you can see only those actions that are important to you.
I'd love to see an actual Audit Log for each field with the user who made the change plus the date/time that field was changed. This is quickly becoming a legal issue since we are REQUIRED BY LAW to retain our records and we therefore need to know who is changing what and when. This isn't just us either, this is true of ALL 501 organizations.

I would like to see that changes have been made by restrictect administrators to their web pages AND a quick way of seeing who has recently updated their profile information.

Received from a client:
"...Notes on webpages would be helpful or a running log of entries on the dash board as a way for us to track internal events/activities in our website management. Such as when we cleanup and reload a member list or add a new field to member profile. In that way we have some milestones to go back to in the event we screw something up. So far nothing happened but there are features we know about but don’t know how to use yet. And when we do try them it is with some apprehension that we could screw something up later that we did not anticipate. Having a log of what we did when would help us to close in on and correct the screw up. ..."
I would appreciate comments and votes from others.
Additionally Would be great to have a recently added/updated gadget box for the website that can show newly added blogs, items on pages, pages themselves etc.
Perhaps even a checkbox when saving your added new content or when changing content to "Include this in Recently Added/Changed Items Gadget Box"
