Distribution Dashboard

This section offers a worldwide view of the captured Consent (all the consent records with a consent code of yes) and Permissions (all permission records) currently in the system. The Consent summary is presented by default, displaying a world map and summary for all the regions, regulations, and permission types. You can filter the results using a picklist, and both the map and table are updated.

In the image below, we have filtered All Consent in the system by the GDPR regulation.

Compliance Inputs Entries Table

You may search by email address and check the compliance input of that particular digital citizen (See 1 above). Partial matches are supported, so you can type only the user of the email and not the domain, and the system will search and present you all the matches. You don’t need to use any special token for the partial search.

There will be one Compliance Input record for each Explicit Permission Type record. This means that if a Regulation has one Explicit Permission Type, there will be one Compliance Input record and one Permission record for each unique email address. If a Regulation has more than one Explicit Permission Type, there can be one Compliance Input and Permission record for each Explicit Permission Type.

Also under Compliance Input Entries are the options to export all compliance input entries (see 2 above) or upload compliance input values (see 3 above). To export all compliance input entries, select the option and the export will be sent to your email address. You may also upload compliance input through a JSON file. You can check the way to upload a list in by following this link.

Lastly, at the bottom of the page you have the option to change how many records are shown per page. By default is set to 10 records, but you can increase that number to 20, 30, 50, 100, or 200 records per page and the value selected will persist throughout the rest of sections that support page sizing. Beneath this picklist, you will have the number of pages with information in the system.

Consent Pagination


Similar to the Compliance Input Entries, this section displays all permissions generated in the system. The permission records contain similar fields as the Compliance Input entries, but they also include the Expiration date of the permission and the specific Processing Purpose. The expiration date lets 4Comply know when to remove information from the consent and permission tables. For example, when permission expires, you might no longer have authorization to communicate electronically, via SMS, or email.
