Hope you are all well.
I am considering using Coda as a Quality Management System to be able to comply with ISO type standards. I would really appreciate it if anyone has any suggestions on how to replicate the following elements that would normally be part of such a system:
- Revision and Approval History of a document
I appreciate that Coda tracks every change but in a QMS, one has to adopt a more formal process. Google Docs allows naming a version but this is not the same as the above because the above type of process needs to record approval of documents as well.
- Recording sign off status
We have to record whether our employees have read an SOP. This is usually done by having a table at the bottom of a word document:
Note that sign off needs to occur for every revision of a document.
EDIT: Also, not every user needs to read every document so we would need to have some sort of personalised path.
- Tracking sign off status across multiple documents
It would be a bit unwieldy to monitor the sign off status of documents individually. Ideally we would need to track the sign off across the whole QMS depending on whether an individual has been assigned that procedure or not.
Thanks for your thoughts on this tricky problem.
