This guide covers how to create a new inspection through the CoInspect mobile application.
There are 3 ways to start an Inspection.
- Start New Inspection button
- Shortcut Icons
- Tapping on Newsfeed
Start News Inspection button. Simply tap on the blue Start New Inspection button and then choose the property and checklist from the drop-down. Select Start Inspection to begin the assignment.
Shortcut Icons. Shortcut icons are those icons showing on the top part of the app. Simply tap on the icon of the inspection that you need to complete. Shortcuts shown are based on your most conducted line checks. You could also click on the New Inspection (blue plus sign icon) if you do not see the desired line check.
Newsfeed. You can also start an inspection through the Newsfeed feature. Just simply tap the desired line check and you will get an option to Start New Inspection.
Once you’ve tapped on the Start button, you’ll see that all your questions are grouped into categories. By tapping on the category, it breaks down the questions within that category. To answer questions, you’ll go ahead and tap on the question itself and for every question, you will have answer options.
At the top, we have the question listed then down below, there is reference information including descriptions, regulations, sample photos, and links that might be relevant to that question (depends on each question). Your answer choices are further below, and you can select any of your answer choices by simply tapping on one of the choices. You can also input details such as measurements or temperature by entering the value.
You also have the ability to take photos. Tap on the Camera icon, and it will give you the option of taking a photo or choosing an existing photo. By tapping on the take photo button, your camera will open up and you’ll be able to take photos that might be relevant to the specific question. You also have the ability to comment on the photo. In order to move on to the next question, you tap 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 tap on the check mark on the top left.
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. There are two ways with the Mark as Done button. One will be at the bottom of the checklist, second will prompt after the last question of a checklist. Please note that answer choices cannot be modified once Mark as Done is selected. Wi-Fi or cellular data connection is required to submit the inspection. If you have any questions or need to have an account setup, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
