I've been trying to find a single word that would say "latest activity" or "most recent activity".

The word is to be used as a column header, and it will probably read either "latest activity" or "latest retry".

The column cells will hold time stamps that is stamped every time a state is changed or when a request to change state is sent. It's really to identify idle workflows.

I've tried searching for it but I don't seem to find any. Is anyone here aware of a single word that would communicate this?

  • I think it would be useful to know how you want to use this single word. A column header in a table, for example, might get a different choice from a word in a management report.

  • How about "latest" itself? Can you supply some context?

  • ELU just uses activity, which is sorted by "most recent first" by default.

For a status timestamp you might use Updated.

The reason for asking about context is because if the column contained details of what the last activity actually was, it may have been appropriate to use something like Progress.

  • I like it! I think Updated will work great, thanks! Commented Aug 15, 2012 at 15:35
