    Hello Sitefinity Team,

    I want to create one gridview control at backend which displays download information of one of List Module. It has a fields like [Downloaded datetime],[UserName (logged in)], [ListItemName], [ListItemId], [ListItemCategory] etc.

    I've read through widgets, modules. Kindly suggest the preferable solution to implement such kind of fuctionality.

    - What to prefere, for the new content type and getting displayed into control ?
    -can i utilize List module for this. like creating List, and datafields into it...change it's widget templates. but it seems, i don't have a control this on codebehind if there is any business logic.

    Please suggest.

    thanks,
    palak

    Hello,

    The easiest way to do this is with module builder - create a new module with exactly those fields that you need. Then you can use this module everywhere and track what you want in it.

    Here you may find more information:
