Getting started

There are two ways to begin an inspection checklist.

You can either:

  • Start an inspection without capturing photos for measurements:

    • Click the Inspect button at the bottom of the screen

    • Fill out the fields on the Property Info screen. Once all fields have been filled out, the "Start Inspect" button will turn blue.

    • Click Start Inspect

  • OR - immediately start an inspection after capturing photos for measurements in one of the following two ways:

    • Right after a live capture, click the blue "Next - Start inspection" button from the Capture summary screen

    • OR you can open an already completed job and click the blue arrow next to "Property inspection"

Choose a template

  • The template options that appear for you will depend upon which ones your org admin has already enabled.

NOTE: Don’t worry - you can create multiple inspection reports per property by clicking the Add another inspection button that pops up after you’ve completed the first inspection.

Fill out the form

  • Answer the questions

    • The ways you can answer a question will vary since they're customizable by your company. Some questions may have you:

      • Type out an answer

      • Use the number pad to type in a numerical value

      • Choose a multiple choice option

      • Toggle the slider to yes or no

      • Add photo(s) from your library

      • Take live photo(s)

  • Annotate the photos, if applicable

    • Tap into any photo to access the annotation tools, then tap 'save' when finished, to return to the previous screen.

      • Use the 'T' icon to add text descriptions to a photo

      • Use the edit icon to draw freeform on the photo and mark it up, as needed

      • You can always undo by using the undo icon on the bottom right side of the screen

  • When you've completed all the questions, click the blue Complete button

  • You're done!

Your branded PDF is available within seconds right on the mobile app screen and can be easily shared, if needed, via email or text.

  • The PDF displays the question text and the answers

  • The PDF also displays any photos attached to the inspection, including any annotated photos

  • To open the completed inspection checklist, click View Property Inspection from the property details page.

  • All the questions and answers will be visible as well as any photos that were uploaded to the checklist.
