Back to Basics Guides


When adding a new Site to your AAArdvark Workspace, you’ll need to configure a few settings to make sure your site is getting the most of out the tools and platform.

From your dashboard, click the Add a New Site button at the top of the page. 

Basic Site Configuration

During the Site Configuration process, you’ll need to fill out the following information:

  • Site Name – The friendly name of the site you are scanning that will show up in dashboards, reports, and search results. If you’re setting up multiple website environments for a site, you might add it as a suffix here. For example: AAArdvark (Development) and AAArdvark (Production).
  • Base URL – The URL to your site. All page paths that you add will be prefixed by this URL before scanning. The URL must be working (loading without an error) before adding a site.
  • Standard – The WCAG compliance level that will be used when scanning your site for issues. We recommend WCAG2.1 Level AA for most sites.
  • Display Level – Whether to display Notices as well in the Issue list.
  • Scan Frequency – Whether to schedule an automated scan of this site daily, weekly, or never. If you are only starting scans manually or with a third-party integration, you can set this to “Never (Manual Only)”.
Site configuration conveying the name, url, standard, display level, and scan frequency options that can be set.

If, however, you require a more advanced configuration – please view this guide.
