Create an Audit Definition

In the Audit feature, you can manage government regulations with pre-packaged and customizable audit definitions. The workflow is simple: create an audit definition, assign the audit, and complete the audit (using the mobile app, if applicable).

Follow these steps to create a new audit definition:

  1. Click Audits in the main header.

  2. Click + Create New Audit in the upper-right corner.

  3. Audit templates are available. To display a popup of descriptions for all of the available templates, click View Audit Templates in the upper-right corner.

  4. From the drop-down, you can choose an Audit Template and click OK to pre-populate the form with information from the template. To create a custom Audit, bypass the template, go straight to the name and description, and continue below.

  5. Edit the Name and Description (if necessary).

  6. Choose a Frequency and Priority.

  7. Choose one or more compliance Categories. Optionally, add one or more Subcategories.

  8. Optionally, you can add walkthrough statements. These statements will be available in the Mobile app—to be marked as an exception, conformity, or not applicable.

  9. Click Submit.
