  4. Tap into the following fields to enter information as appropriate:
    • Trade: Select trade related to the inspection. 
      Note: If trades have not been added in the Company level Admin tool, the 'Trade' field will appear as an empty field. Trades can be added by users with 'Admin' permissions to the Company level Admin tool. See Add or Delete Trades.

    • Inspectors: Select one or more inspectors who will be responsible for the inspection. ​​​
      Note: If you do not have any contacts added to your Directory, the 'Inspector(s)' field will appear as an empty field. You will need to go into your Project level Directory add users to it before you can add in this field. If you add in a name, it will not be saved.
    • Location: Select a location associated with the inspection.
