Everyone knows customizing and auto-populating comments is one of the biggest time savers when writing home inspection reports.
When speaking to home inspectors, many tell me “they haven’t gotten around do doing that yet.”
What if you were able to save new comments to your template while you were writing a report?
That’s exactly what we show you in this installment of our Spectora video series, how to save common comments so all you have to do for future reports is check the defect and boom, your comment is there.
We’ve gotten feedback that when you’re writing a report, you shouldn’t have to back out of the report you’re writing, go to your template editor and add a comment to your library. When you’re adding a comment on a report that you know will come up on most inspections, simply click the “Set as my default” button at the bottom right and this will show up every time you have a leaking faucet.
*Note: If you don’t see the “Set as my default” button, it means the existing comment is already your default. Try changing 1 character or word and the “Set as my default” button will appear.
The goal here is to allow home inspectors to customize their templates as they’re writing reports. You know, the whole 2 birds, 1 stone adage.
As always, let us know if you have any questions!
