How to compare policies and tasks with ePO 5

 


Overview

 

If you’ve created a high volume of policies and tasks, or if multiple people create them on your team, you might end up looking at two policies or two tasks and asking yourself: “what’s the difference?” ePO 5.3 allows you to compare two policies or tasks side by side, giving you insight as to what they have in common or what’s different between the two, making it fast and easy to compare and manage them.

 

Procedure

   

Comparing policies

 

In order to compare policies, go to your ePO console.

Click Menu, Policy Comparison.

 

  

The policy comparison pane opens

Select a product and the policy category that the policies you want to compare belong to.

Then select the policies you want to compare.

 

    

The two policies appear side by side.

The top two-rows of the table display the number of settings that are different and identical.

The differences are highlighted in light yellow.

You can also change the Show setting, to reduce the data being displayed, and view only the differences, or what’s identical (Policy Differences and Policy Matches.) Here, we have chosen to see all.

 

  

 

 

Comparing client tasks

 

In the same way, you can compare client tasks.

For that, in your ePO console.

Click Menu, Client Task Comparison.


 

The client task comparison pane opens.

Select a product and the client type task you want to compare that the tasks you want to compare belong to.

Then select the client tasks you want to compare.
