Streamline Your Template Building With Response Sets

Reading Time: 2 minutes

*Updated March 22, 2017 with new functionality

We took on your feedback and have created a faster, more streamlined way of creating and editing responses to questions in your templates. The result: Response Sets. You can now upload, create and edit a multiple choice response set for any question. (Premium subscription plan only)

For example, you might ask “What facility are you at?” in a template. You can build a centralize a list of your locations and insert them as a multiple choice response and use this same list for a different template. Cut down the time to build your questions and help auditors key in answers faster. Response sets help make a large quantity of possible answers easy to use and manage.

Why it’s useful

If you have a large employee list, inventory list, or location list, you can save a bunch of time with this feature. By creating a multiple choice response set only once, you can apply it throughout several templates.

Let’s say you are a retail manager who creates and manages your company’s templates. You probably have over multiple stores, and each store uses the same standardized templates. What if you open five more stores? You will want to update your template with the new locations. Response Sets makes this easier. Saving you countless hours individually changing each template. You can simply update your responses directly in SafetyCulture or upload an updated CSV file.
