Webhooks for Checklist Steps

We are excited to announce the addition of a new feature that allows administrators to set up webhooks for sending data from checklist when a user finalizes a checklist step.

A webhook, in simple terms, is a way for one application to automatically communicate with another application in real-time. Think of it as a doorbell: when someone presses the doorbell (finalizes a checklist step), it sends a signal (the webhook) that can trigger a specific action in another application (e.g., send an email, create a new task, etc.). This enhancement is designed to improve automation and streamline the user experience.

To use this feature, it must first be enabled. Please contact our support team, and we will be happy to assist you in turning it on for your account.

Sample Use Cases:

  1. Starting a new checklist with another template: When a user finalizes a specific checklist step, a webhook can be triggered to automatically create a new checklist using a different template by combining webhooks with the existing ApiKey feature. This can help to reduce manual intervention and ensure that the workflow continues seamlessly.
  2. Creating a Logic App to send an approval email using Office 365: Upon finalizing a checklist step that requires approval, a webhook can initiate a Logic App to send an email to the appropriate person or group, requesting their approval and once the approval has been received start a new checklist. This helps to speed up the approval process and keeps stakeholders informed.
  3. Generating reports based on completed steps: By configuring a webhook to send data to a reporting tool when a checklist step is finalized, users can automatically generate reports to monitor progress and gather insights. This can aid in making data-driven decisions and help track the overall performance of the checklists.
  4. Integrating with third-party applications: Webhooks can be set up to send data from finalized checklist steps to external applications, such as CRM or project management tools. This allows for better synchronization of data and seamless integration between different systems.

We hope this new feature enhances your experience with our platform. If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team

One for the history books

Having a history of completed checklist and improvement activities is valuable because it allows you to look back and see what activities have been completed, by whom and when.

Additionally, having a history of completed checklist items can help to provide an audit trail and serve as a reference for future tasks.

Luckily, AmpliFlow can now give you such a view.

The history is of course permission trimmed so users only see history items for steps that they have permission to see.

Having the complete history is important for providing an audit trail of all the changes made over time. This allows users to track in detail and gives a timeline of how a checklist or improvement evolved, enabling them to quickly identify any changes that might have resulted in unexpected results or performance issues.

Additionally, it can help identify any errors or inconsistencies in the initial procedure, allowing for better debugging and future improvements.

This will net you the power to create a competency matrix which will give you a birds eye as well as a position/team based view over the competencies that exists in your company.

Correct severity grading is no longer hard

Correctly grading your improvements, deviations, non-conformances or customer complaints on a scale from 1 - 5 is hard.

Why? Because a 3 means different things to me and you. It also means different things depending on what it impacts.

Today users grade on a simple 1 - 5 scale.

If you wish you can keep doing this and refer to externally stored severity grading matrixes.

Or, you can set up a central severity grading matrix in AmpliFlow and use that natively.

Create as many areas as you want and provide descriptions as well as grading labels for each grade to make it easy for your users to correctly grade improvements. When grading is done the improvement will end up with a total grading that actually makes it easy to compare apples to oranges.

Custom Lists

Enterprise Customers can now create “Custom Lists”. They are a place where you can define what data to collect and have it stored near all your other management system data.

Of course you can use the same activity types that you are used to in checklists and improvements.
