We support a new Check type, Date Check, which is intended for a scenario such as accepting or rejecting product based on “use by dates”
Operator Experience: The Operator is required to enter a date by picking from a calendar style screen. The date will then either be accepted as OK or - if not - the user will be taken to a follow-up check. Additionally an alert can be triggered for failed date checks.
Configuration (“WHAT page”) When the Date Check is set up, a “Critical date range” is selected, which is the range of responses which fail the test and which should trigger an alert / or a follow up check.
The “Critical date range” could be as simple as yesterday, today, tomorrow, or can be defined as any period of time. Typical uses include reviewing
- Stock expiry (expiry date tomorrow)
- Safety equipment (Fire Extinguishers last checked more than 4 weeks ago, and requiring a monthly check).
In both examples, a triggered Follow-Up check would prompt the relevant required action.
Date Checks must be enabled by Checkit. Please let us know if you wish to test this feature.
