how to collect sharepoint online column names and datatypes to a list

I'm trying to collect a list of column names and datatypes to track changes to the sharepoint custom list.  does anyone know how to do this?  I'm hoping there is a practical way of doing this through a workflow instead of a powershell or c# script.  

thanks

You should be able to just enable auditing for the custom sharepoint list. In theory you shouldnt need to create a workflow to do so.

Let me know if I've misinterpreted your question.

this article seems to only apply to sharepoint 2010.  I need this for Sharepoint.com custom lists.  It did give me the idea to check the workflow%history/allitems.aspx but that didn't work either.

Re: how to collect sharepoint online column names and datatypes to a list

after testing the audit settings, you have to manually run the audit report to get the list of column changes.  i was hoping for a list where a nintex workflow could export on a scheduled basis.  .
