Inspection Settings
  • Enforce Observation Creation Upon Item Failure: Mark the checkbox if you would like 'Standard' or 'Admin' users to be taken directly into the observation creation screen when they mark an inspection item as Failed. 
    • Things to Consider
      • Observation creation upon item failure will only be enforced if the user performing the inspection has 'Standard' or 'Admin' permissions on the Observations tool.
      • If the creation of an observation is canceled, Procore will reset the status of the inspection item to 'No Status'.
      • The user performing the inspection must have permission to create an observation, and must be using Procore for iOS version 6.11 or later or Procore for Android version 6.6.27 or later. If these conditions are not met, then the user will still be able to perform inspections and create observations, but they will not be automatically prompted to create an observation if they mark an inspection item as 'Fail'.
  • Checklists Private by Default: Mark the checkbox if you would like to mark all inspections you create to be private by default. This means that only 'Admin' users, members of the distribution list, and members of the inspectors field will have access to the inspection.
