Working with Policy Folders

Note: This topic applies to the Framlingham Release.

Policy folders enable you to organize and apply policies according to whatever criteria are most appropriate to your organization.

For example, by default, Guardian blocks all adverts for all users all the time in every location. If you want to allow some users and groups to access adverts sometimes and others to access them always at specific locations, you can accomplish this by creating a policy folder which contains a general web filter policy allowing access to adverts. You can then add policies to the folder specifying which groups are allowed access, at what times and in which locations.

Using policy folders makes it easier to understand the policy table on the manage policies page and more accurately reflects how a policy is applied to specific groups.

You create a policy folder by using a policy wizard.
