Working with Numbered Headings

-

Many policies contain numbered lists to organize the display of content. However, some of these lists can become rather long making proper navigation challenging for users. 

To ease the navigation of lists and to provide a cleaner, easier to use layout, PolicyStat offers Numbered Headings. 

This article and tutorial cover the basics of how to create, modify, or clear Numbered Headings. For Frequently Asked Questions, see this article.

  7. Add additional subheadings, section headings, or section subheadings as needed. The numbering style will continue based on the first level selection.

  8.  Standard numbered or bulleted lists can also be added beneath Numbered Headings. These list items are formatted separately from the Numbered Headings, so list styles (e.g. - A., B., C.) can be adjusted without impacting Numbered Headings.
