Standard Status

Standards can be set to one of three different statuses: Draft, Active, and Inactive. In this article, we will provide a brief summary and the available actions for each status.

Draft

Newly created Standards are saved as Drafts until a user clicks Publish inline with the Standard name. The following applies to all Standards who have a Draft status:

  • Can be edited

  • Can be deleted

  • Is not applicable to any Property Set

  • Is not viewable in the Scoring Results

Once a Standard is moved away from the Draft status it can not be reverted. This limitation also means that once a Standard is moved away from the Draft status it can no longer be deleted.

Inactive

A standard with an Inactive status will have its button underneath the Status column toggle off. The following applies to all Standards who have an Inactive status:

  • Can be edited

  • Can be copied (copy will be saved as Draft)

  • Is not applicable to any Property Set

  • Scoring Results can be viewed if the Standard was applied to Property Set while it was still Active and a Scan occurred
