An event is created each time your payments, authorisations or your payouts change status. With events you can view a detailed history of all payment activity on your account, and break it down by what happened and when.
Types of events could include a subscription being created, a payment being cancelled, a mandate being submitted, or a refund being paid.
Events are a way to track your actions using GoCardless. You can filter these by type, action or date.
For example, if you wanted to see a list of payments created today, click on ‘All resources’ and choose ‘Payments’. Click on ‘All actions’ and choose ‘Created’, then click on ‘Any time’ and choose ‘Today’:
You’ll then be able to click on the specific event you’d like to check, which will take you to view the resource that the event relates to:
You’re also able to export a list of your Events to a CSV file, which will generate a spreadsheet that includes all of the filtered events. Simply click the Export button at the top right of the events list.
This downloads a CSV file to your desktop, enabling you to open a detailed, searchable list of events created in your GoCardless account.
