Occasionally mistakes happen, if they do, with our policy enforcement feature, GAT offers you the way to back out partially, or fully, and restore the permissions removed from the documents.

When a policy has been enforced you will receive an email containing the details of the policy changes and a requested time which you can then search for in the Security officer under  File management tab.
