Checklist Building Blocks
Now you can create a special type of checklist called a building block, which as you can tell from the name is block of standardized checkpoints that you intend to use over and over in multiple checklist templates. For example, a building block of a time reporting table can be used on any checklist that you want to include time reporting. Or on a larger scale, a company library of standard building block checklists can be used to prepare project-specific checklists that preserve a consistent approach for common work. A superpower of this feature is that when the building block is edited, the changes appear on all new inspections without having to update the checklist templates that use it.

Inspecting repetitive, ongoing, and continuous processes just got a lot simpler and easier. Think roadway construction, welding pipelines, cabling, and installing windows in high-rises. Anything that is repetitive and may have several stages of inspection. On the inspection screen, you’ll see a group of dynamic buttons at the bottom, one for each stage of inspection. Press the stage you are currently inspecting and the relevant checkpoints are inserted at the bottom of the inspection report, just above the group of dynamic checkpoints. Then the next section you inspect, choose the relevant button and again the checkpoints are inserted just above the buttons, which are ready for whatever you inspect next. What makes this so useful is that inspections can go on and on, following the natural flow of the inspection process until you are done. You are limited only by the practical size of the inspection report on your mobile device.

The inspection query Q1029 has two additional columns: Inspector Notes and Reference#/Location ID. This query lists inspections, so this makes the listing more complete.
The inspector type “Data Entry” is deprecated. This user type is a carryover from many years ago when paper forms were entered into FTQ360 by a data entry operator.
