iAuditor allows you to collect data in a variety of ways, including temperature-specific data.

This simple field is very useful for noting temperatures at given times and provides a specific place for this information.  Instead of relying on a text field, you can now designate the Temperature field to gather this data. On a Premium plan, you can also connect to a compatible bluetooth thermometers, such as the Cooper Atkins Blue 2 and the RayTemp.

IMPORTANT NOTE

The Temperature field allows for manual inputting of temperatures, but also integrates with the Cooper Atkins Blue2 and RayTemp bluetooth thermometer.

Connecting your Bluetooth Thermometer

1.) Add the Temperature field(s) to your template.  (See below for more details.)

IMPORTANT NOTE

If the temperature does not fall within range, or is greater/less than the temperature set, then the item will be listed as a failed response.

2.) Enable Bluetooth on your tablet/phone device.

3.) Start audit on your device.

4.) When you get to the Temperature field, press the ‘On’ button on your Cooper Atkins device and then tap ‘Connect’ within the audit.

5.) Your device will now automatically connect to the probe.  

6.) Once the temperature stabilizes, click Capture Temperature and the temperature will be recorded in the audit.

Manually Collecting Temperature Readings Using The Temperature Field (iOS)

If you don’t have a bluetooth thermometer, you can still manually type in the temperature readings using this field. The Temperature field can only be added to a template from the Web platform (see below.)

1.) Start by adding a Temperature field to your audit in the Template Editor on the iAuditor web platform.

 

2.) Now that your field is named, you can designate the temperatures you are looking to capture by tapping the Minimal and Maximal thermometers.  You can also set the limitations of the field by tapping the line between your minimal and maximal numbers

 

3.) The field will appear in your audit like this:

 

The Temperature field can also trigger a Smart Field.

When nesting a Smart Field under a Temperature field, you will be presented the options of ‘Temperature Fails’ of ‘Temperature Passes’ to trigger the field; this means you can set the field to display other questions and fields in the even a particular temperature range inside/outside the parameters you set

Using the Temperature Field (Android)

The Temperature field can only be added to a template from the Web platform.  Once added, the Temperature field will appear on your Android device like this:

 

In the Android Template Editor, currently, only the name of the Temperature field can be adjusted.

The field appears normally during an audit and functions the same as listed above.

 

Using the Temperature Field (Web Platform)

The Temperature field is available to add to your templates from the web platform.  The web platform does not have the ability to operate with a bluetooth thermometer at this time.

As in the example above, the Temperature field on the web app provides the temperature text, the specified minimal and maximal temperatures, as well as the option to make the field mandatory and set weighting.

How temperature appears in Analytics

The green block indicates the safe range you set when editing your Template. The blue line is the actual temperature readings, regardless of whether it captured them automatically or manually. This graph appears under your Responses tab in the Analytics section.

Setting up notifications for failed temperatures

It’s important to know when a temperature falls outside of the safe range. Using our API and Zapier, you can set up a workflow to receive an SMS or email notification when a temperature is marked as failed. Here is an example of how it works below:
