Copying inspection items is one of the most powerful features of Flow Mobile Surveying. It's arguably the best time-saving feature of our mobile app. 1.0.66 builds upon this feature and takes copying items to the next level.
Our users have been able to copy inspection items since the earliest versions of the Flow Mobile Surveying app. And it's a popular feature that you value highly, a real time-saver.
However, many of you found it hard to keep track of copied items and methodically work through them since you couldn't see which items you had checked.
v1.0.66 enhances the existing copy functionality by highlighting recently copied items for review, improving your day-to-day mobile app experience when sanity checking work and carrying out re-inspections.
In older versions of the mobile app, copied inspection items looked the same as the original items. So it was easy to get lost.
In v1.0.66 of the mobile app, we highlight copied inspection items in red to separate them visually.
This highlighting means you can methodically work through copied items, removing the highlighting as you go – to ensure the new data is correct for each one. Awesome!
After copying an inspection item, the mobile app will highlight any new items in red. This highlighting will stick around, even if you close and re-open the mobile app.
To remove the highlighting, you'll need to resave each newly created inspection item, indicating that you've checked the data and are happy with any changes.
The new highlighting feature isn't limited to copying individual inspection items. When you copy a report, we now highlight inspection items on the newly created report in red until you've resaved them, neat!
An example of when this comes in handy is during an asbestos survey re-inspection. Using this new feature, you can systematically work through the previous inspection points when you're on-site. I know this will be a gamer changer for many of our clients.
