I am trying to get a solution for an internal company request. We have a set of reports that are used throughout the company, and we want to track who/when(maybe where) downloaded one of these Excel based reports from a SharePoint Library page.
We have been given push-back from the SharePoint Admin team, saying that turning on Auditing would cost too much in extra licensing to be allowed.
Is this really a separate module or piece of software that would have to be paid for? I have read many sites, and questions on Stack Exchange as well, laying out the process for setting up an Audit log, I just don't have the admin level privileges.
Thanks in advance for pointing me in the correct direction.
