We will report to you what changes (if any) we have done. At the bottom of each form (or doctypes as we call them) you will see who has made the recent changes. Additionally, you can view the Activity Log Report to track the activities of users in your account. Changes are also made automatically via patches when a new version gets released. In case a patch fails, an Administrator may change your data. In this case too you will receive an email notification of the same.
