What is a Mandatory Read?

Introduction

Mandatory Reads give Administrators the ability to create or mark Pages in the Hub that require attention and action from users. Mandatory Reads are built on the same structure as Pages, but users are notified of Mandatory Reads and they are required to confirm that they have read and acknowledged the content of the Page.

Only Team Admins, Content Moderators, and Organisation Admins have the ability to create and publish any Mandatory Reads. Team Admins can only edit the Mandatory Reads of the Teams they admin over.

Mandatory Reads, what are they?

Mandatory Reads replace the existing manual processes of getting colleagues to sign documents to acknowledge that they have read them.

Mandatory Reads give Administrators the ability to distribute updated policies, documents, and training to teams, and receive an acknowledgment that each individual has read the compulsory information.

If individuals have not acknowledged the Mandatory Read, Administrators will be able to find out who hasn't read the information, follow up with reminders, and/or contact individuals directly through the Analytics function.
