By default, WooCommerce does not save any kind of log or history for product stock changes. This means anyone with the edit access on WC products, may manipulate the stock quantities without getting logged somewhere.
WooCommerce Inventory History solves this problem and adds extra functionalities to monitor product stock quantity changes.
This plugin tries to log every stock change caused by customers or admins during order placement, product edit, order edit.
Site admins can view the inventory history of each product, from admin dashboard and filter the logs by event type, order ID or product variation (for variable products).
Each log contains information about the event, including customer or admin user ID, old stock quantity, stock change, new stock quantity, event type, date and order ID.
