The Policy Manager App is designed to give districts an efficient method of implementing and tracking user agreements. Instead of having to track paper copies, agents and administrators can quickly look up whether the user accepted an agreement directly on that user's page in iiQ.
Additionally, you can quickly report on user acceptances for quick and easy reporting.
To access the Policy Manager app features mentioned by navigating to the Installed Apps page by clicking on the Manage button.
Creating a New Policy
From the Policies tab of the app page, you can add a policy by clicking on the Add Policy button on the right side of the page.
This will direct you to the Policy Details page. From here, you will need to begin by adding the following information:
- Name: This is the title of this policy agreement you want to display throughout Incident IQ
- Active Period: This field allows you to set an active time period for this policy. You are not required to enter anything here.
- Logo: This field allows you to attach a logo that will display for users on the policy acceptance page. You are not required to attach a logo to a policy.
Next, you are required to enter the body of your agreement itself.
If desired, you can add a confirmation message that appears when a user has accepted a policy. This is not required to complete your policy setup.
Likewise, you can also add a message for users that decline the policy (if allowed.) As with the acceptance confirmation message, this is not required to complete your policy setup.
