New Update and Features Available for iSurvey Inspector on iOS and Android

Great news – there is a new version of iSurvey Inspector available. It has lots of new features including improved check-out functionality.

To update your app please follow the below instructions:

iOS (Apple) users please visit isurveyapps.com/install and install version 3.0.0 by following the listed instructions.

Android users please visit the Google Play Store and search for iSurvey Inspector and install version 3.0.0 and your app will be updated automatically.

You will lose no data whilst updating the app, however it is always good practice to save all reports beforehand.

Here are some of the new features available:

New and improved Check Out format:

Very easily insert changes of condition of the property within ‘View Report Content (Offline)’. The default PDF is now a concise summary highlighting these changes, making it very easy to compare differences.

  1. When an Inventory & Check-in report is copied to a Check-out all sections now have a Check-out input section.
  2. Use the ‘View Report Content (Offline)’ to input all new data and photos.
  3. To add any changes to item descriptions and/or conditions, select the observation column and insert photo(s), responsibility & explanation.
  4. The PDF produced by default is now a concise summary highlighting these changes. It very clearly shows comparisons of the condition of the property between the beginning and end of the tenancy. This makes it easier to view any damage or maintenance work required. The full PDF is also available to download from the website if required.
  5. The tenants forwarding address details can now also be inserted in the ‘Tenants Details & Declaration’ screen.

(Note – if you want to alter the Item Condition rating options at Check Out – you can do this in Settings >> Report Types >> Check Out >> Condition Descriptions. Amend as required and ensure you tap Save. You will need internet access for this process.)

Improved Star Rating process:

You can now add a bespoke cleaning description within the Cleanliness Star Rating Section by tapping on the standard description above each star rating and inserting your own text using the keyboard or voice recognition.

There is a new option within the Inspection Areas screen labelled “Change ‘overall condition ratings’ for all items” allowing you to change the star condition rating as required across all Items in the Report. For example, you can move all from 5 star to 4 star at once, saving you a huge amount of time.

 

Updated features:

We have also added additional options to our current sections, allowing you to produce even more comprehensive reports:

  1. Appointment Details – you can now insert a property reference number.
  2. Inspection Conditions – a new boiler section has been added.
  3. Meters – a solar option has been added to the drop down list and also in all meter sections you can add an access number and supplier details.
  4. Keys – a set of keys option has been added to the drop down list allowing you to easily add details for a bunch of keys.
  5. Alarms & Detectors – the section title has been changed to allow a Heat detector option to be included in the drop down list.
  6. Item Colour – you now have the ability to add your own bespoke colour using free text or voice recognition.
  7. iSurvey Inspector can now be used in both portrait and landscape mode.

 

New photo features:

The photo quality throughout iSurvey Inspector has been improved giving you sharper images to view.

You now have a default option of either using the camera or selecting from your library when taking a photo.

When using the camera you can now take as many photos as required without having to leave the screen. A huge time saver.

To make the camera lighter or darker tap on a light or dark part of the screen and it will adjust accordingly; to zoom in or out pinch the screen.
