FAQ - How do I copy an inspection on an Android device
Inspection Data can be copied from one inspection to another allowing you to re-use an inspection including its comments and photos. This is a powerful feature that is especially useful when you are conducting back to back inspections and you might want to re-use exit inspection content for an entry inspection.
Some conditions and notes:
- It has to be for the same property (you can only copy from one inspection into another for the same asset)
- The copied inspection must have a date and time that is before the date and time of the inspection it is being copied to (Exit inspection is scheduled for 10:00am - Entry inspection is scheduled for 12:00pm)
- The inspection can be copied from the scheduled Or completed tab
- Each copied photo will display a little white icon on the copied photo with a date time stamp to indicate that it was copied from a previous inspection
- Comments and photos can be changed in the new inspection to match the current condition of the property. For instance, if a broken window has been fixed, change the condition from Broken to Undamaged and take a new photo as proof.
Follow these steps:
- On the Home screen locate the inspection you want to copy. Note that the Inspection can be in the list of scheduled or completed inspections.
- Long tap (press and hold down on the inspection) on the inspection to copy. Select Copy Checklist from the options list displayed.
- Navigate to the inspection you want to copy into and open the inspection.
- Select Checklist at the bottom to open the Checklist. A banner will be displayed at the bottom indicating that another Inspection has been copied to the clipboard.
- Click on the Paste option that appears at the bottom of the screen. A list of copy options will be displayed on a pop-up menu.
- Use the toggle switches to select the copy options you prefer
- Replace the existing checklist - this option will replace the existing checklist items on the new inspection. Note - if you select ‘Replace Existing Content’ then ALL current items & photos will be permanently deleted so double-check to ensure that you are on the right inspection before pasting.
- Include photos in the copy - this option will copy the photos from the previous inspection as well
- Click Paste to complete the copy process
