Rules Quick Reference Guide

This Quick Reference Guide covers creating Rules.  PolicyHub Rules control how emails are sent, the time-span within which documents must be read and the criteria by which Questionnaires and Tests are measured.

This icon indicates the rule has not yet been used and is therefore unlocked. This means it can be edited or deleted as well as being activated or deactivated.
