Is it possible to code a field to log each time a user saves changes or edits the fillable form?

Yes, you can create a (hidden) text field with a custom calculation script that will update its own value each time the value of one of the other fields is changed. Note that it won't update if the user makes other changes, like adding, editing or deleting comments, for example.
