The Process

Here's the typical process to create a fire damper inspection report.

Before the Fire Damper Inspection

These steps are carried out in the office using the dashboard.

Create a Job

1. Log into the Dashboard

2. Create a new job

Create the Report

Note: If your preference is to create the report on-site, skip this step.

1. Navigate to the new job

2. Add a Report to Your Job

Input the Scope of Work & Site Details

Before heading out on site, this section should be completed.

The content of these fields should already have been agreed with the client before work commences, so there's no need to wait until a surveyor is on-site.

During the Fire Damper Inspection

The next steps are completed using the mobile app while on-site.

Take a Cover Photo

Take a suitable photo of the building for your cover page and give it a caption. We recommend a relatively wide shot to make the site easily visible.

Carry out the Inspection

This is where you'll spend the bulk of your time in the app.

To add a new inspection item click on the Add Item button in the bottom right corner, or Copy an Existing Inspection Item.

Fill in all relevant data, then click Save.

Variations to Scope

On the day of the survey, were you unable to survey any areas from the pre-agreed scope? Type up some notes and take a photo here to record the variation.

Attachments

Most of the items added here will be done via the dashboard.

But you may want to add a rough sketch of your schematics while on-site. Simply take a photograph of your hand-drawn sketch and save it here so it can be converted into the final schematics and uploaded via the dashboard later.        

After the Fire Damper Inspection

Upload Your Schematics

You can draw up your floorplans in a 3rd party floorplan software then upload these to the report via the attachments section.

Check out our guide to some of the floorplan software that's available.

QC & Approval

This section is completed when you've checked the report and you're ready to issue it to the client.

Print the report

Now that all the data has been entered you can Preview your Report then Download the Report or Share the Report URL with your client.
