Confirming task ownership in the task logs

Making sure your team members complete the tasks assigned to them is imperative to any successful business operations. To check who performed a task, you need to review the task logs and understand who made the update or created the relevant task.

Identifying the task assignee in the log

There are a few scenarios:

Scenario 1: By "system"

"By System" is displayed in the logs if the task was created or updated by the system, following changes in the auto-task schedule or the auto-task template.
Example: If a user changes the assignee in the auto-task template of a listing, all auto-tasks generated from that template are displayed as "edited by the system" in their logs.

Scenario 2: By "Automation"

"By Automation" is displayed in the logs if the recurring calendar-based tasks were created or updated by someone in your Guesty Account.
Example: If a user creates or modifies the schedule of a repeating manual task, all instances of the repeating tasks are displayed with "by Automation" in their logs.

Scenario 3: By a specific user

A specific user name is displayed in the logs if the one-time manual task is created by a specific user, or the changes were made directly on the generated auto task or the manual task.


  • If a user creates a manual task on his dashboard, the task log displays the user's name. 
  • If a cleaner accepts the cleaning auto-task and then updates the checklists, the task log will displays the cleaner's name.
