The Form Designer feature of Trackplan is a great tool for creating many different types of forms, for example risk assessments. These risk assessments can then be attached to jobs or planned schedules, and set as required to ensure that they are read and completed before the job task can be signed off.
Attaching a Risk Assessment Form to a Job
In the Forms tab of the Job Details page, you can view and manage forms that have been added to a job:
On the right-hand side of the screen is the option to Add Form:
This will prompt a pop-up window with a list of forms for you to choose from:
When you select a form, you will be taken to a preview. Selecting Back will return you to the Forms tab, and the new form will be in the Form Results list:
Attaching a Risk Assessment Form to a Planned Schedule
There are two ways to add a risk assessment form to a planned schedule:
- The Forms section of the Planned Schedule Details page allows you to add either an existing form, or create a new form using the Form Designer feature.
- You can upload a risk assessment document from your local device to the main Trackplan application in the Documents area, which can then be attached through the Documents section of the Planned Schedule Details page.
