What is in the Configuration Section of the Admin Tab?


Congratulations on being assigned as a Site Administrator in PolicyStat! This series of articles and tutorials covers the functions available to Site Administrators.

To locate the Administrator Menu, click the Admin tab on the header row anywhere in PolicyStat. 


If your screen does not display an Admin tab, your permissions have not been activated. Please contact another Site Administrator to assign you permissions.

This section covers the Configuration list. For the Site Data list or the Reports list, click the respective titles. 


Please note: Changes to the Configuration list impact the entire PolicyStat site. Ensure you understand the scope of the changes prior to making any adjustments to these categories. 



Global Guest Access Link

The global guest access link allows anyone using it to search and view active policies without the need to log in. 

This link can be placed on a company portal to allow access to PolicyStat for any employees without the need to log-in.

This section also allows the creation of a new Global Guest Access links to replace the existing link.  For security purposes, it is recommended to replace the link at regular intervals to avoid malicious activity by outside parties. Please consult your local IT Security team for advice on how frequently this should be done.
