This guide covers how to create a new inspection through the CoInspect mobile application. There are 3 ways to start an Inspection:
- Go to the bottom of the screen and tap Inspection tab
- Tap on Your Assigned Tasks tab on the upper part
- Select Create New Inspection
- You will be then asked to choose the Property and Checklist you wish to complete
- You can now tap Create New Inspection and get started
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.
Tapping on 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 Create new inspection.
Once started, 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, are your answer options. Further below, there is reference information including descriptions, regulations, sample photos, and links that might be relevant to that question (depends on each question).
You also have the ability to take photos, record a video, or add a signature. Tap on Media & Signatures, 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.
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.
