Reports now get built from your template the morning of an inspection. This means you’ll always have the latest template data in your reports every day!

We’ve heard your feedback: this prevents changes you make in the field using our “Add to Template” features not show up for a few days, since you’re often scheduling inspections for several days out. Clearly this was inefficient and possibly confusing.
Now when you schedule a new inspection, you’ll see the date and time the report is scheduled to build from your template (~3AM your time on the day of the inspection):
When you wake up and prepare for your day, you can download the reports into your mobile app confident that the template data reflects the latest changes you made.
