What are inspections?

Inspections are the processes you and your team go through to capture data and populate reports. In your context, conducting an inspection could be filling in a form, performing an audit, or going through a checklist.

Take note

  • Changes made to inspections via the web app are saved as you go, while changes made to inspections via the mobile app are only saved and synced when your device is connected to the internet.

  • If your device is offline or doesn't have an internet connection, any inspection progress will be stored on the device, until the device is online or has an internet connection again to be synced.
