How do I print the workbook?
There is a printer symbol in the right hand corner above the ‘done’ box on each of the criteria pages. Click that symbol and a new tab will open which provides a print preview page. This lists the criteria in a print-friendly format although, of course we recommend you only print if absolutely necessary.

What is the comments box for?
The comments box is there to support the workbook completion and audit process. When auditing the auditors will wish to see evidence for the criteria. The comments box can be used to record information that will make the audit easier by recording where a document is saved for example or by recording who implemented the criteria. This can also support the team in keeping track of what has happened within the team as each comment is threaded showing you who’s left the comment and when.

How do I change my password?
To change your password or any other contact details, click on the profile tab which can be found on the right hand side of the introduction page once you have logged in. You will see that you are then able to enter a new password.

The Toolkit User Guide can be found at the bottom of the Team Resource Bank.
