Selecting a WorldSpace Comply Project

The project selection "section" of the Settings panel allows you to view the Current Project, make a selection from the Select a project menu list, and click a SELECT PROJECT button to activate the selection. This set of controls allows you to change the currently-selected project (when one has previously been selected), or select a project when there is no Current Project, but you want to make an item selection in the Select a project drop-down menu list and command the extension to switch to it.

Before you begin, in order to select a project, you must first be connected to your WorldSpace Comply server, which is done on the Settings tab. For more information, see Signing In to WorldSpace Comply. Note: You cannot upload to or download from WorldSpace Comply without being a member of a project (this applies to issues, scripts, scope definitions, and custom rules). When creating an organization project in WorldSpace Comply, be sure to leave the Favorite and Accessibility checkboxes checked so that the projects will appear in the list of available projects from which to select in the Attest extension. For more information, see the Creating an Organization Project and The Concept of "Favorite" Projects topics in the WorldSpace Comply 6.0 User Guide.

  1. On the Settings panel, in the Select a project field, click the down arrow to display the list of available projects.
  2. Note: The expanded drop-down menu list is populated based on those you have designated as 'Favorite' in WorldSpace Comply. For more information, see The Concept of "Favorite" Projects.
