Policy Links (Public URLs)

It is often desirable to embed links to a specific policy within an email, other websites, or external documents.  Public urls should look similar to this:

https://universitytennessee.policytech.com/docview/?docid=99&public=true

Viewers are not required to log in to Central Authentication Service (CAS) or to PolicyTech.  If you or your viewers are prompted to log in, please check the url.  Do not copy / share the browser url.  Also, make sure the url ends in &public=true.

Follow the steps below to identify the correct URL for a policy.

While viewing policies:

  • Browse the policies to locate the desired policy
  • Click on the … under the Actions column
  • Select “View Properties”

  • This will open a new window
  • Scroll toward the bottom of the new window to the “URL” heading (above “Language”)
  • Copy the Public Access URL

Effective October 2017, UT policies have been migrated and redirected to PolicyTech, a new document management system.
