Role watchdog automatically logs all role changes made through the user profile or the User List in its own table. A record of these changes is shown in a Role history tab on each user's page. Role watchdog can optionally monitor one or more specific roles for changes and notify members of selected roles via email whenever a change occurs.
This module might be useful when there are multiple administrators for a site, and you need auditing or alerting of manual role changes.

Role watchdog will automatically start recording all role changes. No further configuration is necessary for this functionality, the module will do this "out of the box". A record of these changes is shown in a Role history tab on each user's page and optionally in the Watchdog log if enabled. Users will need either "View role history" or "View own role history" access permissions to view the tab.
Role watchdog can optionally email members of selected Notify roles when selected Monitor roles are added or removed. This was specifically added to keep a closer eye on certain role changes, such as an Administrator role. At least one Monitor role and one Notify role must be selected for this functionality.
