PolicyTech Tips

Collected tips and techniques for navigating PolicyTech:

  1. Public URLs
  2. Browsers:  We recommend using IE11 or Chrome to view and edit in PolicyTech.
  3. Printing:  Two options for printing:  1) Use the standard Adobe menu that is displayed when you hover over a policy (using a recommended browser).  The printer icon is the second from the left; 2) or CTRL+P to bring up print dialog.
  4. Need to navigate long policy documents?  PolicyTech uses standard Word functionality.  For Windows users, to go to top of document (CTRL-Home); to go to end of document (CTRL-End).

  • Workflow for approvals, periodic review, and expiration
  • Role based security
  • Email notifications of events
  • PDF automatically generated for public viewing
