Use this question type in the Facilities & Buildings module to record key measurements… and have CityReporter automatically determine whether those measurements meet your standards or not. For this example, we’ll set up a question that measures the pH of the water in a public pool. Our desired pH range is 7.0 to 7.4. If an inspection reveals that the pH is outside this desired range, CityReporter will record a fault and highlight the inspection form with a triangle icon for easy visibility.
1. Using your computer, log into CityReporter web with your city code, username, and password. Select the Facilities & Buildings module from the tabs on the left of the screen, then click the Setup button at the top of the screen. You must have Administrator permissions in order to access the Setup button.
2. Click the Edit button beside the group of forms where you would like to add a Min/Max Priority Fault question. For this example, we’ll work within the Aquatic Inspections group of forms.
3. To create the new Min/Max Priority Fault question, click the Plus button on the right side of the screen to add a new question to a new or existing form. Select Add New Question from the menu that appears.
4. Using the Question Editor, enter the text for your question. In this example, we’ll ask the inspector to measure and record the pH of the water. Set the Question Type to Min/Max Priority Fault. You’ll see two extra fields to record the Minimum Value and the Maximum Value. That’s where we will insert the desired ranges for our pH readings. If the pH ends up being outside of this range, a fault will be triggered. To add Fault Description notes, follow our tutorial How To Set Up Easy Fault Descriptions.
5. Click Ok to finish adding your question to the form. Add more questions if desired – and once you’re done, don’t forget to click the Save button as shown below.
6. To see the new Min/Max question the next time you do an inspection, remember to refresh CityReporter on your mobile device.
