1. Client Details

We’ve now added the ability to include your clients information against your projects and exported reports.

Client details can now be entered on multiple lines in the available input field. Details shows up on exported reports under the heading PREPARED FOR / ON BEHALF OF:

To update client information on an existing project:

  2. Navigate to the Details tab
  3. Click on Edit Project Details at the bottom of the page.

2. Defect Numbers

Defect numbers will now be assigned when you save a defect using the Project Reference followed by the assigned number.

If your defect numbering gets out of order (due to creating & deleting), you can reassign numbers after you have finished your inspection using our default ordering or by the create time/date.

To view a defect number, open a project list or defect pages.

To Assign Numbers to an Existing Project or to Reassign Numbers:

  • Open your project
  • Navigate to the Details tab
  • Click on ‘Reset Defect Numbers’ at the bottom of the page then select your preferred order

Paid users can now edit and mark up photos or images added from your gallery. Utilise this tool to highlight and identify key issues relating to your defects.

How to Edit Photos

Defect Completion and Create Date fields are now available to edit and update on the defect page.
