Does the task of updating control documentation in more than one location seem redundant and a drag on your day?
Changing the description or general governing details of any page in policyIQ can create a wave of changes that need to be made in other places in the site. Wouldn’t it be great to make the update once, and have that update be reflected everywhere?
It definitely would be. Consider it done!
The next update of policyIQ will include a new field type: Linked Fields. This field will be a field that is auto-populated with the data from an existing field on a linked page. For our SOX and Audit clients, think about things like control descriptions. These descriptions are periodically tweaked, and that change needs to be reflected anywhere the description appears. We’ll create a linked field on our test result pages that are likely linked to this control page, and point it at the description of the control page. Because of this setup, the control page can be updated, and the test page will automatically pick up those changes.
Creating new linked fields is easy, and it’s coming to your policyIQ site in the next few months! Please contact us with any questions or thoughts on how you may take advantage of this huge new feature.
