Events occurring within MS SQL Management Studio

by Oct 22, 2016

Is there a way to see what actions are taking place within the SQL Management Studio.  My reports can only show me the user and if they select a database but no table or other actions taken.  This is not helpful, if I need to monitor my privileged users.  How do I know what they are accessing or what actions they are performing.


Whats the difference between "MS SQL Server Management Studio – Transact-SQL IntelliSense" versus "MS SQL Server Management Studio" I have two types of actions one has 21 entries and the other 67. 

Thank you,
