Hello BrianFord,

You will need to setup an Audit Policy.  

Here is the path-
Open Active Directory
Right click on your domain name
Click on Properties
Make sure Default Domain Policy is highlighted under the Group Policy
Click on Edit
Under Computer Configuration, drill down to /Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Audit Policy
