  • Configured settings for Compass (such as Allow Search or Allow Bookmarks)
  • Settings for each website (such as the website URL)
  • Customized icons or default icon for each website*

* If you do not have a customized icon for a website, the policy console uses the default site icon to display the website in the Launch Pad view of Compass.
