Create a Defect

DefectWise enables the fast, accurate capture of construction defects. This article shows how to create a defect.

  • Select the project the defect belongs to.
  • Select the list the defect belongs to.
  • In the web portal, click the “+ Add Defect” button.
    In the mobile app, tap the “+” button at the bottom of the screen.
  • In the web portal, the new defect card will open to the right-hand side.
    In the mobile app, the new defect card will be the next screen presented to you.
  • The new defect card allows for the Area, Element and Issue to be defined, along with any additional notes/details and contractor assignments. At this stage, it is also possible to add photos.
    In the mobile app DefectWise, the Area, Element and Issue dropdowns have a number of possible options, but it is also possible to add your own simply by typing the desired value and tapping Save as New.
  • Once the card has been populated as required, click/tap save to finalise the defect.

The Area/Element/Issue options are not mandatory to create a defect.
