Creating Question Sets



Question Sets can be comprised of one or more questions that the inspector responds to while performing a task on the mobile device. Question Sets are optional.

Note: Once you have created your Question Sets, remember to link them to the associated Task Assignments! Refer to Creating Task Assignments for additional information.

Questions are very flexible in structure and include the following six types:

  • Multiple Choice - Ideal for Pass/Fail/NA or Yes/No/NA questions (NA is optional). There is a four response limit and each response is limited to four characters. Failed Questions can be configured to trigger a Discrepancy and/or an Incident. Default Answers and Warnings are optional.
  • Numeric - Numeric Readings are configured for any type of numerical record, including pressure, temperature, weight, seconds, etc Value ranges are optional, Low Range, High Range, both or no range. Failed Questions (readings outside of the range) can be configured to trigger a Discrepancy and/or an Incident. Default Answers and Warnings are optional.
  • Pick List - Ideal for Questions that require a response greater than four characters (see Multiple Choice) or is configured to permit the inspector to have multiple responses. Failed Questions can be configured to trigger a Discrepancy and/or an Incident. Default Answers and Warnings are optional.
  • Date - Records a date reading (remember by default all inspections are date and time stamped)
  • Text - Question is worded for the inspector to complete in an open text format(25 character maximum). An example would be the last Question in a Question Set and the text question is worded for the inspector to enter miscellaneous inspection comments.
  • Bar Code - Inspector would need to carry a Bar Code strip with bar codes that represent particular values. The inspector would respond to the question by scanning a bar code.
