Here at Wastebits, we are always looking for ways to streamline processes, improve communication, and reduce unnecessary steps when creating and managing waste profiles. One of the steps we have taken recently--and are proud to announce today--is the re-working of our waste profiles from separate forms into one, unified form that intelligently shows you the fields you need while hiding those that you don't.
A leaner form that is only as complex as you need it to be.
What Has Changed
Previously you had to select between special and hazardous profile types, each with its own set of fields and requirements. In order to streamline and simplify the process, we have allowed a single profile to be used for both of these types.
With the new unified profiles, we've reduced the amount of typing needed when the person generating the profile is at the same address as the material origin. Simply click on the new "Same as Generator Address" link and we'll automatically fill it out for you.
Less typing = fewer errors
We have also removed any ancillary questions that are not required while ensuring that regulatory fields are included as needed. Our new profile logic intelligently expands or hides additional questions based off of your previous answers.
For example, if your profile does not include asbestos, you will not see any additional questions to ignore regarding asbestos within your profile:
Further fields for asbestos not needed
However, once you click "Yes" for "Contains Asbestos?", then additional questions appear to further complete your profile.
Further fields for asbestos intelligently appear.
As a result, Wastebits users are no longer required to complete or selectively ignore questions that don't pertain to their waste. Profiles are completed faster, and fewer errors are made since unnecessary fields aren't even displayed.
What About the Old Profiles?
As we roll out the unified profiles across Wastebits, all profiles (both new and historic) will adhere to this new design. Previous data for any fields that are no longer included in the unified profile will be housed in a section titled "Legacy Information."
Legacy Information will only appear for historic profiles where information was provided that doesn't fit in with the new design. If you don't see Legacy Information in your profiles, then we've found an appropriate field for everything within the new unified profile.
Rest assured, no past information will be lost. The only exception to this is if you clone a profile with legacy information, the legacy data will not carry over to a new profile, but instead a prompt will appear making you aware of this fact and asking if you would still like to proceed.
