The legal documents are generated by the Wizard and will show up under ‘Pages’ with a shortcode in the content.

This shortcode is used to update and translate your documents automatically when needed.

For example; after installing other plugins, Complianz might detect changes and a new cookie scan is needed to update your Cookie Policy and Privacy Statement.

Or, new guidelines have been proposed by the ICO (UK), and legal changes have been made in the policies to be compliant.

Or maybe you are using a multi-language website with German, English and French. The shortcode will be used to push translations to the necessary policies.

We will explain how to edit your legal documents below, and what this means for updates and translations.

How to edit your documents with the Classic Editor

Find the “Document Status” on the right-hand side and use the dropdown to choose between;

  • Synchronize document with Complianz (Default)
  • Edit document and stop synchronization

Choosing ‘Edit document and stop synchronization’ will remove the shortcode and paste the cookie policy, now ready for editing.

If you choose ‘Synchronize document with Complianz’, your cookie policy will revert back to the shortcode. This cookie policy will apply all changes made in the wizard even when your document was not synchronized with Complianz.

How to edit your documents with Gutenberg

Please make sure you’re using the Gutenberg Block – Widget called Legal Documens – Complianz. It will look like this:

  • Synchronize document with Complianz (Default)
  • Edit document and stop synchronization

Choosing ‘Edit document and stop synchronization’ will remove the shortcode and paste the cookie policy, now ready for editing.

If you choose ‘Synchronize document with Complianz’, your cookie policy will revert back to the shortcode. This cookie policy will apply all changes made in the wizard even when your document was not synchronized with Complianz.

How to edit your documents with Elementor (and other Page Builders)

In elementor or other page builders, there is no option to enable/disable synchronization with Complianz. To edit the document in your page builder, please revert to either Classic Editor or Gutenberg to make the switch. 

Consequences of changing the shortcode to HTML

Not synchronizing with Complianz, so you can edit your legal documents, will change a couple of things in regards to the wizard and other functionalities:

  • Your documents will not be translated automatically anymore. If you edit your documents with your own texts, you should translate these strings yourself using a translation plugin.
  • Legal updates will be present in the wizard and shortcode, but can’t be pushed to the edited documents.
  • If you revert back to synchronization with Complianz. The last updates in the wizard will be pushed to your documents, but your edited text will be lost.
  • The cookiescan will still work, but recognized cookies and descriptions should be added manually.
