Save Time By Saving Your Task Recordings Directly To Compliance Process Documentation Library

Tip Of The Day - Saving Your Task Recordings Directly To Process Documentation LibraryIf you are using the Task Recorder to document policies and procedures and then attaching them to your Internal Controls within the Compliance Portal then you may want to set up the Task Recorder to automatically save to the library by default, so that you don’t have to manually copy them there.

With all this new spare time, you won’t know what to do with yourself.

How To Do It…

Open up the Process Documentation document list within the Compliance Portal and click on the Open In Explorer icon within the Connect & Export group of the Library ribbon bar.
