The activity log (Work Activity component) tracks changes to a record's values and logs any comments that users may enter against the record. This component is generally used in conjunction with the Work Title component to create the conversational view of a form such as the incident form in Dreamtsoft's service management bundle.

Update Activity Log Via Script

var SpeakLogs = require('work_activity_log/SpeakLogs');
var speakLogs = new SpeakLogs();
var recordId = 1; // populate record id here
var bucketId = 'somebucketid'; // populate bucket id here
var userId = 1; // populate user id here
var message = 'Some message goes here';
 *  if message is plain text
speakLogs.saveSpeakAsPlainText(recordId, bucketId, message, userId);
 * if message is of Quill content type (Basically if the Quill Widget was used to generate the message)
//speakLogs.saveSpeakAsQuillContent(recordId, bucketId, message, userId);
