Inspect Point allows you to add custom inspection questions that will appear in your inspections. These questions can replace, or be in addition to, any NFPA questions that are required on inspections.
In this article we will go over creating user-added questions, editing existing questions, and how to view them on the iPad.
Understanding the User-Added Questions Page
First, navigate to the Inspection Questions section in the Settings tab.
All of these links are where you can add or edit inspection questions, depending on which type you’d like to work on.
Next, click on the section you’d like to edit a question in.
Note: For the sake of this article, we will be working in the Fire Alarm Questions section.
Once here, you will see filters at the top of the screen, along with the list of questions below.
Looking at two examples here, we can see the Frequency of the questions are set to “Annual,” the Section is set to “Alarm Indication Appliances and Circuit Information,” and User-Added is set to “False.”
This last field indicates that this question was created by Inspect Point, not by a user.
We also see that these two questions are active, meaning they will appear on all Fire Alarm inspections going forward.
Adding a User-Added Question
To add a user-added question, click the New Alarm Question button at the top of the screen.
Next, enter all the information you’d like for this question.
Once everything has been entered, click Save at the bottom of the screen to confirm your changes.
This question will now appear on all Fire Alarm inspections in the future, unless the question is marked inactive.
Editing an Existing Question
Inspect Point also allows you to edit an existing question.
To do so, navigate to any question that says “False” under the User-Added column and click in the ID. This will open the Question Edit screen.
Here, we can see the fields are grayed out, meaning they are uneditable. This is expected behavior, since this question was created by Inspect Point and not user-added.
However, these questions can be edited / reworded if you would like. To do so, click the button at the bottom of the screen that says “Copy to a New Question and Deactivate Current.”
This button will make a copy of the question that is editable and now becomes user-added. It will also deactivate the original question so there are no duplicates in your inspections.
Once clicked, you will see a banner at the top of the screen asking if you’d like to proceed. Clicking the “Click Here” button will bring you to a new screen where you can edit the question.
We can see that the fields have become editable.
Furthermore, when viewing the question from the listing screen, we can see it says “True” in the User-Added question column, confirming that it is user-added.
User-Added Questions in the Field
Once your questions have been created / edited in the backend, they’re ready to be used in the field.
To view them, create an inspection and then scroll to the corresponding section of the inspection.
In our example here, the Horn Strobes question appears in the “Alarm Indication Appliances and Circuit Information” section, just as we entered it.
Add additional questions as needed.
