Designed for precision and convenience, Uptick’s built in Prompts and Prompt Sets are configure to align with safety, performance and legislative standards. This enables accurate servicing by providing your field staff with prompt questions which will end in a clear Pass or Fail compliance.
Uptick will provide you with prompt questions for any or all asset types identified in our standards list. Once set up on your system, any assets that are tested will need to be serviced by going through prompt questions before ultimately granting a Pass or Fail for that asset, ESM or component.
You can also choose to customise your prompt questions, anytime in order to help you tailor your asset testing.
Managing prompt sets
Prompts are set against Prompt Sets. Each Prompt Set can be configured to apply to specified standards, asset types and routine service types.

1. Go to Control Panel > Prompt Sets and View the appropriate Prompt Set.
2. Click Update. On the next page you can view, configure and add to your existing Prompt Questions
3. Fill out the fields:

Choice - When answering the prompt question, field staff pick from a select few choices that have been configured by the company.
Multiple Choice - Allows your field staff to answer prompt questions with multiple options from a predefined list of choices.
Header - The header option is different to the rest, it's purely an opportunity to add an informational title, amongst your prompt questions, making it easier for field users to navigate through the questions. The Label is the only thing you need to fill out here.
Example if it a Header with a Label of 'Section 1' was created:
ii. Ref - This field can be used to add the standard's reference or any other reference you desire, this is not required, but will show up on your service report if added.
iii. Label - This will be the front and centre question you wish the field staff to answer. This is required.
iv. Help text - Any further information you wish for your field staff can see about the question if need be - this will show up on the app if the question is clicked. Help text for Header question types will not show on the app.
v. Routine Service Type - The Routine that this question is applicable to, in case this asset type is applicable to more than one routine. This is required.
vi. Limit to Levels - The levels that this question is applicable to, for example, this question may only be applicable for Annual testing. If left blank, the question will apply to all levels.
vii. Remark Type - Add a remark type here if you wish to force field staff to create this remark type if the prompt fails. If this is not filled out, they will be able to pick from all the available remark types like normal.
viii. Limit to Variants - The asset variants that this question is applicable to, for example, this question may not be applicable for Diesel pumps, but not Electrical pumps. If left blank, the question will apply to all variants on this asset type.
ix. Choice - If this question is of Type Choice or Multiple Choice, you'll need to open this cell to add this question's choice options so that your field staff have options to select when answering this question.
Finally, these prompt questions can be updated or added in bulk via our importer. Read here for more information about using our importer.
How to use
Once any prompt questions have been saved on an asset type, all assets with that type will start requiring a technician, via the app, to go through these questions before signing off with a final Pass or Fail.
Uptick offers a prompt response service report that can be enabled by contacting the Support team. We offer this for free, however, any further customisations will come at a fee, template requests can be made via our website here.
