Create a Project Level Inspection Template


To create an inspections template at your Project level for use in one project's Inspections tool.


Creating Inspections templates at the Project level allows you to easily use the same or similar templates in your project without having to remake them each time. Templates created at the Project level will not sync to the Company level. If you want to use a template on more than one project, create the template at the Company level. You can also modify an existing Company level template to fit your project's unique needs.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 'Admin' level permissions on the Project level Inspections tool.
  • Multiple choice response sets are created and managed by company level 'Admin' users in the company level Inspections tool. See Create a Multiple Choice Inspection Response Set 


  1. Navigate to the Project level Inspections tool.
  2. Click the Configure Settings icon (icon-config-settings.png).
  3. Click + Create on the Templates tab.
  4. Under General Information, enter the following:
    • Name: Title your inspection. This will show up on your inspections log page and will help you differentiate between your inspections within your project. This is a required field.
    • Type: Choose from the list of inspection types added to the company (e.g. Safety).
      Note: If you have not added inspection types to your project, see Configure Advanced Settings: Company Level Inspections. You will need to have 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Inspections tool.
    • Trade: Give your inspection a trade (e.g. Electrical, plumbing).
      Note: Your company's trade list can be managed at your Company level Admin tool under Trade Configuration.
    • Description: Include any relevant details about the inspection.
    • Attachments. Attach any relevant files to the templates by clicking Attach Files. 
      Note: If you try to create an inspection template without a name or with a name that already exists, there will be an error message details the reason. You can create an inspection with the same name as one in the Recycle Bin, but once you name it the same, you cannot restore a template in the Recycle Bin without first editing an inspection template to change the name.

    • Safe' and 'At Risk': Select this set to enable team members to choose between the responses 'Safe' and 'At Risk' when performing the inspection.
  6. Add sections and items to your inspection as follows:
    • + Add section: Click this button to add a section to your inspection template. Fill in the field with the title of your section. When you are done, simply click out of the section.
