Can QuickBase log changes to a field of User type?

    I've read a whole bunch of similar questions and I feel like the answer must be really close so I apologize if this has been answered before but I just can't get it.

    I've got logging turned on for my [Status] field, which was easy because it's a Text-Multiple Choice type.
    The option to turn on logging is not present for my [Assigned To] field because it's a User type field.
    I've tried using Text-Formula to convert the User type to a formula, but that field type doesn't allow logging either.

    How can I track changes being made to a record so that I can see who it _was_ assigned to and who it _is _assigned to, just as I can see what the Status was and is?  Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    I read some more user scenarios and learned of the webhook technique for accomplishing the same thing, so I forewent the built in logging.  Add/Modify/Delete record on Table A triggers an API_AddRecord webhook that copies all desired fields to Table B.  All field types can be copied and I don't have to build workarounds for the messy display of logging within Table A.
