Compliance Sheriff comes with 3 main types of reports. At the highest level we have a "Score Card". Our preconfgured report is called the "Scan Summary", and the most granular report is the "View". This article will briefly describe each option. Score Card
-- At the highest level we have our "Score Card" which can be found under the "Scans" tab, under the "Groups" page, by clicking on a percentage for Scan Group. This report gives a nice high level view of a specific project or scan group, by displaying the scan on the left, and the checkpointgroups used for each scan acros the top. This report can be saved to your own personal dashboard if desired and can even be exported into a view. You can also click on any of the percentages within this report to dig down into a scan summary.Scan Summary
-- The second type of report is the "Scan Summary".. This preconfigured report can easily be retrieved as soon as a scan has completed by clicking on the resulting haetlh score. This preconfigured report will display basic information at the top, such as total number of pages scanned, number of failures etc.,, but the most useful part of this report (IMHO) is the "Top Ten Issue List" down below. This list will be comprised of the most frequently occuring issue resulting from this scan, and willgive you insight into the "low hanging fruit" issue -- those issues that are usually attributed to the template itself. These issues associated with the web template can usually be remedied fairly quickly, and is a great place to start with Accessibility and Privacy scans. Click on any of these ssues, and you'll have access to the rendered and code source view of each issue. We even povide a "How To Fix" link for more information and examples.View
-- The most granular and customizable report is the "View". Views can be linked to individual scans and scan groups. (Tip -- Hold down the "ctrl" key to select multiple scans). To create a new view you can click the Views tab in the navigation bar, or, click the menu for "more options" next to each scan, then click "Show Results". On the View configuration page, you'll have options such as whether or not to include "failures", warnings, and "visual checks". You can select a specific checkpoint group, specific pages, even sort the results in a specific order by using the "group By" drop down menu. You can even create a custom order of results for the "groupby" menu under "Settings" then under "User Agents, Variables, and Key Attributes".
- Views will always display the latest set of results. For example, say you create a view, then run the scans linked to that view a few months later. The view will display the results from the latest set of scans.
- Views can be in either HTML format or PDF format.
- Views can be linked to "Notifications", and be sent as either HTML links or PDF reports.
