A URL source is a link to a live, external website (not housed within Compliance Assist). By creating the source in the URL Sources area, users can quickly, and easily, create links inside the Narrative textbox to external websites. It also provides a list of the URL links provided throughout the Narrative at the bottom of the standard’s view mode.
If you plan to archive your Accreditation module for a compliance report submission, please note that there is potential for off-site reviewers to read your report without an internet connection. If that is the case, URL Sources/external web links will not be accessible. URL sources will only open if the reviewer of your archive is connected to the internet.
