Choose Manager or Board Approval
Enter in a Version Number
This can be any Version number of your choice to start with. After the first version is set, the system will offer a minor version or major version moving forward. Example: If you set your first version to Version 2.0, the next time you release a version, the system will offer you 2.1 or 3.0. A free text version is only offered this first time.
Choose an Effective Date
This can be set to a date in the past for this first release only, and only as far back as the date your most recent article in the policy was originally published (approved.)
Click Release Version Button
Your policy has been released with all approved articles and considered effective per the date set and is now available in the Viewer interface and for downloads so long as the status is also Active.
