In InventoryBase, an “Inspection” is a property report of some kind, whether it’s an Inventory, Check In, Check Out, Interim Inspection, Risk Assessment or any other type of property report.
Please note that if you would not like your clients to have this ability, you can switch this off. From the Clients tab, find and click on the client and then onto the Settings tab. Under the Enabled Inspection Types section, you can check and uncheck the type of inspections you would like your client to add.
After you add a client to your account, they then have the option to book in any future inspections using InventoryBase by selecting Add Inspection. They will find this button on the top right of their Dashboard or Inspections page.
The first screen will be the property screen, where the client can type a new property address or click the 'Existing Property' button to select an address you've already added before.
On the next screen the client can then select the Report Type, date and time of the Inspection. They are not able to select the Clerk, and inspections are only created provisionally until you confirm them. Click here to read about the TBC feature.
