Assign multi-validators to the audit folder

2016.12.15

The validation of the audit data is a crucial step in the Data entering process within the ViaSyst Database. This validation is now more flexible, with the possibility to assign several validators to an audit folder.

Starting point & Rationale

The principle of having a single validator assigned to each audit folder was limiting as only the assigned validator was authorized to validate or unlock the audit folder, which created problems in particular in case of vacancies or change in CB personal.

Implemented evolution or improvement

To simplify the Database use CBs now have the possibility to assign many validators to the same audit folder.

By selecting “Multiple Validators” when opening a new audit folder, all CB users assigned as Validator will be able to validate or unlock any new audit folder created.

Implications & Recommendations

Instructions on how to assign validator or multi-validators are detailed in a specific item of ViaSyst Audit Report Platform - Instructions for use & FAQs.
