Add column to Violation Instances export that details to what standard and success criteria each violation maps back

Clients sometimes are required to provide data showing to what standard (and success criteria) or regulation each issue maps. Currently, to pull this data, a client has to filter the data in the Violation Instances view on each desired standard, export, add a column to note the standard that was used for each export, and then collate the results. Clients should not have to take so many steps to meet a relatively standard data request.

The Compliance Table report view provides some of this information, but clients need to be able to export a list of all violation instances and have an additional column(s) that align the standard (i.e. WCAG 2.0 A) and the success criteria (i.e. 1.2.1) to each violation instance.

    I worked on a project last week, where a client was given a VPAT at the end of the audit and they were asking for this exact functionality. They want an easy way to export the WCAG violation that maps to each violation so that they can prioritize the highest severity items that map to WCAG Level A criteria to fix the most critical issues.

    [Suggested Fix]

    It makes the most sense to have this on the "View all violation instances" section of AMP so that clients can easily sort this information and export to Excel if they wish to do so. Please highly consider adding this feature to AMP.

    [Business Case]

    This will be a truly valuable feature so that clients can better prioritize the issues documented in their VPATs. If clients are able to fix and sort issues by severity and WCAG criteria, it will allow them to focus on the most critical WCAG success criteria and thus make a bigger impact in the amount of issues they will fix. It will also make it much easier for VPAT authors to map the issues with the correspond WCAG criteria to expedite VPAT authoring, thus saving VPAT authors within AS valuable time.

    This request has been raised again by another client. The new request originates from the Enterprise Digital Properties Governance team within one of our large enterprise clients based on the West Coast.

    Mary, we are unable to do this with the current data model, but will defer this to our next gen AMP product.
