New Features/Updates Launched In November

Recently Created Users Report Sorted by Created Date 
The Recently Created Users report now sorts by way of the creation date by default. To make the report easier to use as a quick reference tool, the default is now to sort by date.

For more on the update, see this Newswire post.


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 more on this feature see this Knowledge Base article.


Numbered Headings
Numbered headings use text boxes with Heading formatting to serve as major list items. This helps break up long lists into more easily manageable parts and increases the readability and usability of your content. Numbered Headings also populate the Table of Contents, which can quickly link users to part of the list for easy access.

For more on this feature see this Knowledge Base article.


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.
