Auditors and testing teams have been asking for an even easier way to view information about the associated Control or Procedure that they are testing. Rather than having two screens open side by side in policyIQ, auditors would prefer to see critical details about the control that they are testing right there on their test screen.
Now you can make that happen – with NO DUPLICATION OF DATA! And it literally takes less than 2 minutes, with no additional data entry required.
How? If you are a Site Administrator, you need just 2 minutes, I promise!
On your Test page template, simply add a new field and select “Linked Field” as the field type. Select the field that should be linked from another page template, save it and VOILA!
If you’ve added the Control Description field from the Control template, for example, you’ll automatically see the Control Description displayed on a Test page for any Control that is linked to it. If there are multiple controls linked to a single Test, you’ll see multiple Control Descriptions, identified by the page name.
This function does not apply to audit testing alone! Consider these other ideas:
- Pull vendor information into a Contract page.
- Bring risk descriptions to Control pages.
- Create Process pages that pull in linked Control Descriptions.
- Pull project task descriptions into Action Items.
- Bring issue details into a Remediation Plan.
