New & Enhanced Features to Protect Your Workplace

New menu with Custom Questions Option

We continue to update and add new features to the Screening Aid in order to help keep your workplace and personnel safe. As the pandemic continues, it is critical that organizations in Ontario have a COVID-19 screening application that can meet all of their needs.

These new features include:

  • Custom Questions
  • Group/Department Setup
  • Group/Department filtering on Responses
  • Screening Date filtering on Responses

Custom Questions

Create, modify, and preview your custom questions with the COVID-19 Screening Aid. Easily create custom questions that are important to your workplace and customize the web app to suit your organizational needs in a way that is simple and quick.

We have created a custom question setting where you can write specific questions for your employees that are then included in the screening questions form that is sent out. This allows the administrator of the web app to ask questions about specific scenarios and issues that directly affect your workplace and department.

Custom Questions Setup

This custom module is not part of the standard web app, but it can be included as an additional feature at your request that Websdepot will activate.

On the custom questions’ setup, there is a preview button that allows the admin to view the format of what the custom question form will look like to those receiving them. This will allow you to plan and layout the questions accordingly based on your priorities.


Group / Department Setup

This setting makes it easier to filter through employees and their responses, particularly for larger organizations with multiple personnel and visitors that enter the workplace often. The admin can use this feature on the Employee Listing and Employee Responses sections of the web app. (See images for reference).

New Department/Group

To set up this feature, go into Employee Listing, from there click on the edit user information button on the right-hand side of the individual user and then select the ‘Department/Group’ function to place them.

Click on the edit user function to view employee information and to select their department.

This will allow the admin to categorize the employee by the department that they belong to. You can add a new department by simply clicking on the ‘+’ beside the ‘Department/Group’ function, where one can name and save the department that will then be set up in the app.

Select or add a new department.

It is an easy and simple process to add new departments and assign employees to them accordingly. This feature is particularly useful for larger organizations with multiple employees across different departments or groups. Easily keep track and filter responses while doing it quickly and effectively. We’ll explain how to use this feature in the next section.


Group / Department Filtering on Responses & Employee Listing

Now that this feature is set up, you can now easily sort through employees and their responses by different departments or groups in the app.

Department / Group listing

In the Employee Responses section of the app, the admin can search and examine all of the screening responses across multiple variables, such as name, date, SMS, email, status and more.  Simply click on the ‘Department/Group’ variable to cycle through all of the responses that were made by employees in different departments. This feature also applies to the Employee Listing part of the app, so that you can easily find employees based on their department as well, before sending out the questions.

Filter by Department / Group

This feature offers a detailed breakdown of the screening question responses in your organization, without needing to manually parse through all of the data. It is a quick and efficient method of filtering the responses among employees in different departments and in order to find the data that you need.


Screening Date Filtering on Responses 

We have also enhanced the option to search and filter responses based on specific dates, making it easier to go back, view, and keep track of past responses which is useful for contact tracing.  To do this, simply select the ‘screening date’ in the Employee Responses section to view all of the responses that were made by users on a particular day.

Search by screening date

The app automatically keeps track of all of the responses that have been received and this is another feature of the app that simplifies plays a pivotal role in keeping your workplace safe.


These features expand the functionality of the Screening Aid to meet your organizational needs, while also keeping it simple and easy-to-use. Our COVID-19 screening application benefits employees, managers, and businesses as a tool that is designed to be reliable and give you peace of mind as you focus on your operations.

Save time and stay safe with our COVID-19 Screening Aid web application.
