Projects We're Rolling Out In August 

Table of Contents
The Table of Contents feature is all about helping end users of a document navigate directly to the right location in the file and get access answers to their questions quickly. This feature quickly links users to a heading or subheading via the corresponding Table of Contents link.

For sites who activate the feature, the Table of Contents will appear on the View pages for Active and Pending versions of documents.

For more on this feature, see this Newswire Post.

Site Administrators should contact PolicyStat Support ([email protected]) to get early access to this feature as we roll it out to all sites.

POLICYSTAT USER ROLES IMPACTED: All Users

Scheduled Effective Date
Some policies require a delay between the date they complete the Approval process and the date they become active and searchable for all users. This may be the result of users needing to complete training, reach an implementation date required by a regulation, or other circumstances.

This feature will allow Owners to mark an effective date (or a number of days) past the final date of approval, which will determine when a policy becomes active.

For more on this feature, see this Learning Center article or this Newswire post.

Due to custom configurations applied to some sites, not every site will be able to activate this feature right away. Site Administrators should contact PolicyStat Support ([email protected]) to see if your site is available for early access to this feature. If your site does not immediately qualify for activation, we will be sure to reach back out and let you know as soon as it does.
