WorldSpace Navigation

WorldSpace navigation can be tricky to get ahold of at first. As it works in a top-down effect and some sections are only found within the pages themselves and not within the navigation. This rundown will hopefully help you understand what each of the sections contains.

Home

example of WorldSpace home menu

This is the landing page when first logging in. By default it will show you your favorite projects. By default, all projects that you have created will automatically be favorited. If you are not associated with if you have not favorited any projects, this table will appear blank.

Here you have:

  • A quick overview of accessibility scores of the projects you are part of.
  • Any issues that have been assigned to you and their levels.
  • Quickly visiting your organization dashboard.
  • Managing previous or currently running scans.
  • Creating a new project.
  • FIREFOX BROWSER ONLY: Downloading the FireEyes II plugin for Firefox.

Dashboard

There are three levels of dashboards which represent the three levels of the software:

  • System: Overview of all Organizations you are part of.
  • Organization: Overview of all projects within one Organization.
  • Project: The overview of all issues within one particular project.

System Dashboard

Example of System Dashboard

The System dashboard gives an overview of all the organizations you are part of. It will give the overall score of all organizations, as well each individual organization score. It also allows you track changes within the system by selecting a date range trend.

By clicking into any of the organizations, you are brought to the dashboard of that Organization.

Organization Dashboard

example of Organization Dashboard

The Organization Dashboard overviews all of the projects to which you are associated with within a single Organization. If you are part of multiple Organizations, you can utilize the internal dropdown at the top to navigate between your Organizations.

Much like the System Dashboard, it gives an overview of the score of the pages, as well as the trend of the projects over a selected date range. From here you can dive down into each of the projects dashboards.

Project Dashboard

Example of Project Dashboard

The Project Dashboard is the most important when it comes to learning and understanding the issues within your particular website. Here you will see:

  • The score of your website based on your previous scans.
  • How many issues per pages.
  • The total issues and the range of their priorities.
  • The specific types of issues and their occurrence within the scans.
  • How many scans are being utilized in the project.
  • How many pages have been scanned, ignored, and processed.

More on how to read this data can be found under Scan Results in the Project Dashboard. For sharing this information with team members and external Rutgers staff, visit Exporting Data.

Pages

example of page's menu with scan results

The pages that were scanned for your project can all be found within the Pages section. The output will all depend on how deep the scan was, or the limits within the domain.

Here you are able to search through the pages scanned within your project and see specifically how many issues are within each page. This page also allows you to search and filter through the pages for specific urls, priority of issues, or if they are associated with a group of users.

More on how to utilize this information can be found in Viewing Page Issues.

Issues

example of Issues menu with scan results

The Issues section contains all of the issues that WorldSpace Comply found within your project during its most recent scan. The issues can be sorted by url, severity, labels, groups, users, type, assignment, etc.

Here you are also able to create issues, or upload locally scanned issues from WorldSpace Attest for Chrome or FireEyes II for Firefox (contact the Accessibility Team for latest version of FireEyes II).

More on how to utilize this information will be under Viewing All Issues.

Scans

The Scans section is specifically dedicated to the scans set for your project and are to be maintained by the Accessibility Liaison or an assigned member of your team.

Your project may include one or multiple scans, dependent on the types of scans run for your project. More on how to run and utilize scans are hosted under How to Run Scans.

Settings

Updating or changing the settings within your Organization or Project is dependant on if you are an administrator or user of a particular project. There is a myriad of different ways to change your settings, many of which may be unneeded for your workflow. To keep this guide short, we will only overview what each item is in basic means. More detailed breakdowns are available in the Deque WorldSpace Comply User Guide.
