In order to begin working on an inspection, you will go to the “New” field. Chose the property that you’re at and then click the start button next to the checklist that you want to work on.
Once you’ve clicked on the Start button, you’ll see that all your questions are grouped into categories. By clicking on the category, it breaks down the questions within that category. To answer questions, you’ll go ahead and click on the question itself and for every question you’re going to have the same basic layout.
At the top, we have the question listed. Down below, there is reference information including descriptions, regulations and links that might be relevant to that question. Your answer choices are further below, and you can select any of your answer choices by simply tapping on one of the circles.
You’re also able to take measurements (if the checklist is set up to take measurements). You can take measurements by just entering the value. We also do offer a field to take notes in, so you can come in here and type out any notes that need to be taken.
Finally, you have the ability to take photos. By clicking on the camera icon, it will give you the option of taking a photo or choosing an existing photo. By simply clicking on the take photo button, your camera up will open up and you’ll be able to take photos that might be relevant for the specific question.
Once you’ve taken the photo, you’ll see here that you have the option of retaking the photo or using it. Then you have the ability to comment on the photo too. In order to move on to the next question, you click the next arrow on the bottom right and you’ll see the next question is listed out. Then again you can do your answer choices, comments, or photos that need to be taken.
In order to go back to the list of questions, you’ll click on the check mark on the top left. You see here that we’ll be taken back to our list of questions. CoInspect uses what we call stop light system to show positive and negative answers. You can see here two check marks meaning we have a positive answer, while any red Xs would mean we have a negative answer.
Once you’re done answering all your questions you’ll go ahead and click on the “Mark as Done” button. Once you’ve marked that the checklist has been completed, you will be able to review your answer choices. Please note that answer choices cannot be modified once Mark as Done is selected.
By clicking on this review button, you’re able to go back in and review any of your answer choices that might have been made. And you can also view the report that gives a line-byline summary of all the questions, answers, photos, and comments that might have been made.
Once you’re done reviewing the report, you’re able to email it to whoever needs to get it by simply clicking on the email button and filling in the “To” field along with the subject. Once that is done, you’re able to send the report to whomever needs to get it.
