2369597 - How to do Change Reporting on more than one column - Advanced Reporting

Symptom

The Change Reporting feature in Advanced Reporting only allows reporting on old values for a single column.  Is there a workaround or an alternative to achieve a change report on multiple columns?  This is needed for audit purposes.

Environment

SuccessFactors Reporting & Analytics
Advanced Reporting
