Overview of Temperature Checks Section

When you navigate to the ‘Temperature Checks’ page, you will find a grid display of all your temperature check locations. Each location is represented by a card that displays the name of the location, the latest temperature recorded, and the time of the last temperature check.

  5. Temperature Bounds
    • Here you can set your Min & Max Temperatures for locations, for example Fridges should be between 1ºC – 5ºC

  4. Click on the ‘Submit’ button to log the temperature check. The new reading will be added to the log of temperature checks for that location.

  2. You can scroll down the page to see a list or table format of the logs for easier reading
  3. You can use the filters option to view dates in the past in the tile view
