Create temperature response questions

Learn how to add and format temperature response questions via the web app and the mobile app.

Why use temperature response questions?

Temperature response questions are a great way to note down and measure the temperatures of assets. When the temperature readings fall below or exceed your preset ranges, you can add logic fields to trigger follow-up questions, require actions, require evidence, and send notifications depending on users' answers.
