Acknowledgements are assigned as single acknowledgments by default. When a user acknowledges a policy, they are not required to re-acknowledge any subsequent versions.
Recurring acknowledgments mean that each time a new version is created (i.e. - completes an Approval Workflow), assigned users will need to return to PolicyStat to review the changes and re-acknowledge the policy. If there are no changes to a policy or document, an acknowlefement will not be triggered
To assign acknowledgments as recurring, check the box just above the Assign Acknowledgments button.
If minor changes are made as part of an Administrative Override (e.g. - typo corrections, modify properties, etc.), this does not create a new version and recurring acknowledgments will not be assigned.
