audITs are specific to an audITee. To make an audIT, you will navigate to audITees on the main sidebar, and then open up your desired audITee. Then, click Create audIT for this audITee.

Getting Started

audITs are identical regardless of the type you choose, but selecting the correct type will help you quickly categorize audITs later on.

  • Baseline audIT: use this for first audIT you'll create for any audITee.
  • Proposed audIT: this is the audIT you'll use to complement a proposal, showing potential improvements.
  • Business Review: choose this type when conducting regular client reviews.

Building Your Report

An audIT is composed of at least nine audIT Items to create a 3x3 presentation grid. Items correspond to a specific technical area, like workstations, DNS, or cabling. 

Summary Statements

The summary statement indicates the status of an audIT Item and corresponds to a red, yellow, or green marker to indicate whether an item requires immediate attention, needs improvement, or is satisfactory, respectively.

To set a summary statement, click audit-item-summary-statement-icon.png on an audIT Item.

Infographics

Infographics add a visual pop to your audIT Report and are a great visual aid for your clients. We've preloaded some infographics, and you can always add your own.

If an item has infographics available, click has-infographic.png to edit. If you're uploading infographics for the first time, click audit-infographics-upload.png. Enable or remove an infographic by toggling the star-enabled.png icon.

Infographics will only appear if your audIT Item is yellow or red.

Notes and Change Log

You'll usually create a new audIT by cloning one you've already created and updating specific audIT Items as needed. We track these changes and place them in a change log.

If you want to add a little more context around a specific change, you can add custom notes to appear alongside your change log events.

To access notes and change log, click audit-item-change-log-icon.png at the top of an audIT Item.
