This guide describes the options available to a User who has all the available permissions. If you do not have all the available permissions, the options available to you may differ from those shown. Additionally, certain functions in the PolicyHub menu are only accessible with the appropriate licence. These are indicated in the documentation with a footnote.

Accessing Menus

There are two ways to access the various menus in PolicyHub:

  • Rightclick on the required item.
  • Select the required item, move the cursor to the right until a black triangle appears and then leftclick on the black triangle.

Although the first method is used throughout this guide, either method can be used.

Note: If you rightclick on an item or area of the page which does not have an associated PolicyHub menu, the browser’s default rightclick context menu is displayed.

If Microsoft Office is not displayed, click the Choose button and browse to the location of the application you want to use to open Microsoft Word documents and click Open. You are returned to the Launch Application dialog. Select the option Remember my choice for msword links and then click OK.

Editing Tests And Questionnaires
