After the new audit is registered, a new page will open.
In the upper right corner, you will notice the buttons to Download an excel template. This will create a template as mentioned before in this article: 'Checklists' (please see above). But this download will download the current checklist from THIS audit. If you want to create your own template, please refer to 'Checklists'.
You can also upload the filled template here. Please make sure the template has been used correctly, so only the answers and justifications are given (no rows or lines deleted or overwritten).
This site comes after you have created the audit report in the step before.
You can check Standard, GGN, and the producer’s name in the top line.
Below the top line, you can change the status of the audit (here named assessment):
New: The default new status.
In progress: Audit in progress (date planned, audit going on)
Open CA: this means ‘open non-conformance’ and ‘corrective actions’ as their solution
Closed: Audit is closed, and the decision is taken.

This is the heart of the app. You can fill the checklist here. Please note that this is only possible when connected to the internet. Saving data that is entered offline is possible with the excel upload, but not within the checklist in the browser.
If you need to save data when offline, our system offers an easy standardized link. If programming service companies want to offer you the possibility to save data offline, they can add it to your side of the system. For the communication between the programs, we use a programming standard with the name 'REST API'. Programmers will know how to handle this information.
When connected to the internet, you can fill out the control points just as you would offline or on a paper list. You can enter multiple fields and save them whenever you like.
Please not that this section only (Checklists) has an auto-save integrated, manual saving can be done at the end but is not necessary here between the steps.
You can show and hide all criteria points and filter for questions answered with Yes, No, N/A or unanswered ones.
The flag can translate text to the language of the logged-in user (English <-> Spanish). Please consider that this is done via Google Translate and is only for convenience. There is no way to guarantee that the translation is correctly done by Google translate.
On each control point, there is a small icon that looks like (three) people. This will allow you to fill in a whole subset of criteria points in bulk. This way you avoid clicking dozens of times the same ‘Yes’ if a producer is compliant with the whole subset.
The icon on each control point or its subsets that looks like a list offers the possibility to show and hide the control points of this subset.
You can upload relevant documents in this section or directly attach it to the corresponding control point.
