Once that's done, you can start adding your systems, using the System Inventory section on the left. Click + Add system, then answer the questions that are presented to help you determine if that system needs to be included in your public catalog.


There is help text to guide you along the way. The first five steps are to determine if the system needs to be included in your public catalog. Note that anything exempt will show in your dashboard, below in the exempted systems, for your reference. They will not be included in the catalog the public sees, however.


Here's an example of a few inventoried systems. Note the exempted system, Video monitoring, is below on the left and is not required in the published catalog:

Once you've completed your system inventory, you're ready to publish the actual catalog. To do so, click + Add catalog revision on the right side. On the next screen, click the blue Publish this catalog button:

A few more tips:


Your URL will always be the same, and will always point to the most recent catalog revision. If you add new systems on the left, remember to create a new public catalog revision on the right.


Put a reminder in your calendar to update the catalog annually. Our tool allows you to publish any number of revisions to your catalog, so you can update even more often if you'd like. Some agencies choose to publish a new catalog any time they add another computer system so they are constantly on top of it.
