5 Mobile Forms Must Ask Questions

By: Shannon Corgan, Director of Marketing

1. CAN I SEE MY MOBILE FORMS  IN REAL TIME? 

You need real-time access to know what's going on in your business right now. Global visibility from a single database provides anytime access from any device with muti-user viewing of the same form. With WorkMax FORMS, no need to wait to get back to the office to view any of your forms or go into the dreaded dungeon full of file cabinets to find the form you need. It's right at your fingertips.  


2. CAN I ADD PHOTOS, SKETCHES OR VIDEOS TO MOBILE FORMS?

This is one of the most common mobile forms questions we get. The answer is yes. You want to be able to embed as much media as you need for documentation. More importantly, you want everything all in one place and organized all in one form. This protects your business with accurate documentation with media like electronic signatures, audio, videos, photos, and sketches that you can find quickly. With WorkMax FORMS, no need to save your forms or reports in one file and media files separately. Here's another reason to add media to your forms. You can harness the power of your whole team to collaborate to solve problems faster in the field by using the video, photos, and sketches. This makes your customers pretty darned happy and gets your employees moving on to the next task at hand as quickly as possible. 


3. ARE THE FORMS DYNAMIC WITH CONDITIONAL LOGIC? 

Companies looking to collect more accurate data typically ask this mobile forms question. Dynamic forms allow you to add as much information as you need. They adjust to the length you need based on the amount of information you can add. Make sure the mobile forms are flexible enough to also properly format the printed forms to any length based regardless of the amount of data you've entered. Find a mobile forms solution like WorkMax FORMS that doesn't limit the amount of data, so that you can get all the information you need all in one form. The if-then, then-that conditional logic saves time and presents only the relevant questions based on how questions are answered. Employees complete the forms faster and everyone gets all the right information they need as quickly as possible. 

4. CAN FORMS BE EMAILED FROM MOBILE DEVICES?

For timely and accurate documentation, make sure you have a mobile form solution that creates pdfs to mail to anyone. The pdf format of the mobile forms keeps it easy to read and organized. It also makes it look pretty slick if you need to print the form. WorkMax FORMS saves you time and expedites mobile forms delivery by setting up forms to automatically be emailed to specific people. 


5. CAN I CREATE A FORM WITHIN A FORM?   

Another common mobile forms question is how can we require a follow-up form to collect all the data we need. Many forms require you to complete follow- up forms. Select a mobile form solution that can automatically trigger follow up forms based on responses to eliminate critical data delays. Nested mobile forms save you time because you won't need to send multiple forms. Get all the information you need the first time and right away. No need to stock paper forms and run back to the office when you need a follow-up form. Find a mobile forms solution where everything is updated in real-time and automatically pushed to any device anywhere anytime. This ensures everyone is completing the most current form and you get all the information you need. Check out our video on nested forms

Did you know you can use mobile forms for training employees on safety? I hope you enjoy the final article in our four-part series focusing on How Mobile Forms Improve Your Safety Programs. Knowledge is power and the best thing any organization can do is educate and provide training for managers and supervisors on how to prevent injuries as well as OSHA guidelines, and company processes and procedures for injury reporting. Your managers and supervisors are on the front line and hear and see what’s going on in your business day to day.

“According to the National Safety Council, workplace injuries and illnesses cost our economy 198.2 billion dollars a year. That's over half a billion dollars each day! Employers who invest in injury and illness prevention programs can expect significant cost savings in addition to reducing fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. Workplace safety is not only the right thing to do for your workers; it's the right thing to do for your business." said Dr. David Michaels, Assistant Secretary of Labor1

So, now that we know that safety issues have a financial impact, how can you help your business reduce employee injuries and use mobile forms for training on safety topics? Are safety and injury reporting part of your onboarding for new managers and supervisors for injury reporting and prevention? If not, it should be. How often are you providing training? Do your managers and supervisors know where to go to ask questions as they arise for injury reporting? Mobile forms are great tools to support your managers and supervisors and allow you to create intelligent forms that walk them through safety recordkeeping and timeline requirements. For example, if a supervisor or manager wasn’t sure about one of the questions on the mobile form, there could be an option for “I don’t know” which would prompt follow up questions to help them provide the right answer to the question. You can even provide them with a training video to help them answer the question correctly.

After the onboarding training is conducted with your managers and supervisors, what do you have in place to help them apply the training? Have you developed educational content within the safety reporting to give them the resources to answer the questions correctly? Think about how much new policy and procedure information needs to be provided to managers in their first months of employment. Most employees don’t know what they didn’t understand until they have to apply the information in a real situation.

Because of the advancements with forms, mobile forms can help educate your managers and supervisors to determine if an injury is reportable. Businesses can personalize their mobile forms and use conditional logic to guide managers and supervisors through the completion of forms. Based on their responses additional questions appear and if they are unsure of any answer, more in-depth clarifying questions can guide them to an appropriate answer. The leading mobile forms products of today can become a self-guided assessment tool to educate supervisors and managers, as they fill out the injury form. The mobile form can also prompt them with instructions to help them determine if they need to contact OSHA and within what timeframe or do we just need to inform the company’s safety and compliance manager. The manager or supervisor can also document the date and time of their notification to OSHA if it’s needed.
Businesses can also use mobile forms to create an audit trail for the training programs you have put in place for employees, managers, and supervisors. After each of your training sessions, you can capture electronic signatures from employees verifying that they received training on injury and illness prevention programs.
