  • Red – 0%
  • Yellow – 50%
  • Grey – N/A (question is not counted against final score)
  • Pink – Custom Score (auditor can select a score from 0%-100%)

To select an assessment, simply click on the assessment menu and select the one that is appropriate.

Issue Corrective Actions and Effectiveness Assessments

You can issue a corrective action for an audit item by clicking the “Add corrective action” button. This will open a box that allows you to assign a due date and responsible person, attach files, and enter a message of your choosing. Once you click “Save”, an email and corrective action will be sent to the responsible person.
