What you’ll love about this new functionality

To ensure accurate information capture, your team may require multiple units of measurement depending on what is being inspected. This level of detail is crucial for maintaining data consistency and standardization. To facilitate accurate data capture, we have introduced 32 units that cater to a wide range of use cases. These units include:

  • Distance (in, ft, mi, mm, cm, m, km)
  • Volume (mL, L, gal, m³)
  • Time (hr, min, s)
  • Temperature (°F, °C, K)
  • Weight (oz, lb, t, g, kg)
  • Electricity (A, Hz, Ω, V, W)
  • Others (cd, cycles, %, psi, mol)

How to get started with the new release

Units are available to start using in number response questions within templates today. To learn how to create number response questions and use units, check out our support articles here and here.

For any additional support, contact our Support Team or your dedicated Customer Success Manager, and they’ll be happy to assist.

Nice. Just saw this and updated a template already to utilise the new feature


Great to hear, Andrew! Hope it’s helpful for you and your team.


Got excited for a second there… then I realised it’s not applicable to calculations.

We complete assessments on food products by recording start weight, wash weight, etc. results are recorded in percentages, which is where % for calculations would be a huge advantage for us.

Back to excel I go. 😫


Hi Andrew k,

Thanks for the insight into what you are trying to do. I don’t have any timelines for you, but we do want to look at more complex functions within our calculations feature soon. When we do I’d love to reach out and make sure we are on the right path.

So, excel can continue to be your friend for now, but we will hopefully be able to help one day.

I’m curious if there are any other forms you use outside of SafetyCulture that you would love to get in but can’t?

Cheers,

Ryan


This is great! I’ll spend some time updating templates today 😎 if possible, could bar be added as a unit of pressure? And maybe some speed units such as m/s? Its great to see the continual updates and improvements that are being made! Thanks you!
