Direct Compliance

How to view and manage your compliance cases

Direct Compliance makes it easy to update your website and send emails. This seamless integration saves you time by automatically sending your changes to your compliance department. Approved changes are then published automatically. This guide will show you how to view and manage your compliance cases using Direct Compliance.

How Does Direct Compliance Work?

Website and content edits, along with non-pre-approved content sends, will require compliance approval.

After making an update or creating content to send, you will see a new compliance case appear on your Compliance page:

Updates listed on your Compliance page have been submitted to your compliance department—no further action is necessary on your end. 

  • When your compliance department approves a pending update, those changes will go live immediately.

  • If your compliance department rejects an update, they will leave a note detailing the changes you'll need to make before the updates can go live. 

Note: If you are subscribed to the Daily Digest, you will receive an email whenever compliance takes action on a pending update. Whether they reject or approve the content, we'll let you know. Click here to learn more about setting up your email notifications.

Pre-Approved Email Content

Some items in the Content Library may be pre-approved for use as-is.* Content pre-approval is determined by your compliance department.

Once you select an item for use, if the item has been pre-approved, you will see a message notifying you of its pre-approval status.

*Any edits to the content will require compliance approval before use.
