How to Easily Create Your Health Screening Form
Building your first health screening form in OnTask is simple. Take a look at these best practices for creating your health screening and use these tips to get started:
Creating a new workflow
To begin, select “I’d like to create a new workflow or web form from scratch.”
In the next screen, click “insert first task” and select the web form button. This is where you’ll be able to start gathering customer information.
Adding headings and form fields
Next, click the pencil icon on the web form to add fields and make edits. Under the general tab you can add a heading to your form. The form fields section allows you to place a variety of different fields for things like participant name, email, temperature checks, symptom-related questions, date filled and more.
Field data types within OnTask include:
- Single line text
- Multi-line text
- Multiple choice
- Simple checkbox
- Date picker
- File upload
- Group heading
Each field can be designated as required or not required. For single text fields you can also define what the data type is, including email, number, currency, phone, text URL or zip code.
When adding fields to your form, we recommend defining both the field label and property name. The field name is the text participants will see when filling out the form, so it should explain what you want them to do. For example, if you’d like a customers email, the label “your email” would work perfectly.
Adding a property name that is easy to remember is also important. Defining a property name is important in case you’d like to auto-fill information, send an automatic email or add conditional logic later in your workflow. Using “email” or “customer email” is one example of a good property name, however they can be named whatever you’d like.
Protip: You can break questions into multiple steps by adding multiple web forms to your health screening workflow.
Using conditional logic in your health screening workflow
Adding conditional logic to your workflow allows you to give users different options based on their responses. For example, if a user answers “yes” to having a fever above 100.0 degrees, they can be given a screen that tells them to stay home from work. If they answer “no” they could be taken to the next screening question steps in the form. Learn more about using conditional logic here.
Adding signatures to your health screening form
Most users tend to add a signature step to the end of their workflow to verify that participants have answered all of the questions truthfully. This can be done by adding a signature step to your workflow. All signatures captured in OnTask are secure and HIPAA compliant.
Sharing your health screening form and reviewing responses
There are a number of dynamic delivery options available to share your health screening form once it’s complete including email, SMS text message, via QR code, a shareable link or a bulk send at whichever frequency you need.
Protip: If customers will be entering the lobby of your business to fill out their health screening, using a QR code allows them to scan and access your form right from their phone.
Once participants complete your health screening form, all instances will be available in your dashboard for you to review and download.
