Assigning URLs to New Policy Library Documents

Writing New URLs

By following the recommended URL naming convention, we can ensure that the subject and policy owner for each Policy Library document is easily identifiable by the user. Consistency is key. The recommended format for URL naming is as follows: office-name/policy-name

Example:
Policy Owner: Human Resource Managment 
Policy Title: Workplace Violence Policy
New URL: human-resources/workplace-violence

You will always use the same Policy Owner prefix for your policies, and the only thing you will need to customize each time is what you will use for the policy title. We recommend using the most concise version of the policy name possible, excluding words such as ‘of, ’ ‘the,’ ‘a,’ etc., and separating words with dashes
