- To change the display settings for areas apart of different applicability groups
- PolicyStat systems with multiple sites / applicability groups
Areas belonging to sites which are part of Applicability groups (multiple connected sites) cannot be deleted. To remove them from view to prevent users from selecting them, Site Administrators can hide them.
Hiding an area does not have an impact on policies already assigned to the Area, but rather the ability to assign new or existing policies to use the Area.
Areas may be known as Policy Area, Department, Category, etc. on your PolicyStat site. Some terminology may be customized for your site, but the concepts are universal.
Newly created or displayed policy areas will not display under the Area tab or other active area locations (such as CSV reports) until a document is approved that has that area assigned as a property. Once a document is completely approved, the newly created area will display under the Area tab.
- Click the Admin tab

- From the blue bar, click the Show/Hide Areas link.
