This variable standard operating procedure (SOP) template was developed specifically to provide a baseline structure for you to be able to utilize to create your own company procedures.
Simple add this template directly to your Process Street account, and you'll have access to all of our features to edit the template in whichever way best suits your needs. Some of our editing capabilities include:
- Adding/deleting tasks
- Form fields to record data
- Ability to add descriptive text or media to tasks
- Assigning team member roles to collaborate on procedures
- Using conditional logic to offer variable pathways depending on decisions made along the way
- Syncing the template with your existing software for better workflow automation
We've included, throughout the structure, explanatory information to help build context for you as you move through the procedure, and also provided clear, completable tasks which make up the steps of the procedure. For example, you'll find form fields that you'll be able to use to gather necessary information.
When you've edited the template to your liking, you can either run it as a checklist within Process Street, or you can export the template as a PDF if you prefer a standalone or physical document.

What is the "Variable SOP Structure Template"?
This SOP template is part of a series of innovative SOP structure templates, designed to make building, implementing, and following SOPs easier for everyone involved.
The name of this template refers to the combination of fixed and variable instructions. Some parts of this template will be fixed (i.e. stuff you know will need to be done every time) while certain steps will be variable (i.e. the "variable" daily tasks you may not know until you start the process).
Check out our article for more SOP examples, and to see the other templates for SOP innovation.
At the end of this procedure, we've provided a list of the different standard operating procedure examples we've created. We've also made sure to include procedures that can be used by companies throughout various industries.
All of the listed SOP procedures are publicly available. So that just means you can add any of them to your Process Street account and customize them to better suit you and your company's needs.
