Using the scorecards

The consolidated compliance workflow status for each requirement area is indicated in the form of a status indicator. Red indicates a new status, yellow indicates an open status, and green indicates a closed status. Notable events are shown in the form of a bar chart by urgency. Notable events are also shown in the form of a table by owner.

Each scorecard or requirement area has its available reports listed, showing when the report was last viewed, and which user viewed the report. Notable event history displays as a chart. The following example shows a scorecard for requirement 1.
