    Is there an audit trail option for any changes to setting?

    In a sense, yes. What version of AX are you running?

    Jennifer,

    The Database Log is Microsoft's answer for an audit trail solution in AX. It's meant as more of a debugging tool rather than a full on audit solution and will affect system performance when it is enabled on a table. So you want to be sure you do not turn it on for transactional tables. Reporting on the audited data can be cubersome and there is also no data management of the audited data (archiving/purging) so something else to keep in mind. If you are looking for a more full fledged audit solution there are other ISV options.
