Introduction to Policy
By Guðrún Gústafsdóttir
Policy enables you to enforce your organization's web standards or content strategies.
Is can be accessed via Main menu > Policy
Policies can be as simple or complex as required, and policies can be associated with one or multiple sites. Any number of policies can be created.
Siteimprove groups are integrated within Policy, enabling editors to focus on matches for pages that are relevant to them, but at the same time adhering to policies that are in place for the whole organization.
Under Policy Overview in the Policy module, you see all policies that relate to the sites you have access to. Once a site is selected you can filter the policies by a group.
Select a specific policy from the Policies table and choose the site you are interested in if multiple sites are available.
The policy details table allows you to see specifics for that policy – the rules that have been used, the sites it is associated with, who last edited it and a note (if added).
The table displays each page where there is a match, together with details.
Matches can be ignored on a page basis using the ignore button.
All ignored matches can be viewed and reversed at any time by filtering the table.
My sites gives a quick overview of all the sites you have access to with the number of policies that have been set up for each site together with the number of current matches.
Policies can be created from the My Policies menu or from the Policy library. The resources below are available to guide you on creating policies:
