Next Gen Settings

  • Save Media to Gallery

By enabling this setting, you can automatically save pictures taken in the app to your device's album, conveniently labeled with the inspection address. This feature is perfect for capturing both CYA photos and non-report photos, which may prove useful in the future.

  • Save Annotated Images

When enabled, this setting will save your annotated photos in your device's gallery. This would include photos with any shapes, such as arrows, circles, or squares. So you can easily access them whenever you need them.

  • Auto-Annotate

Immediately after taking a photo, you will be taken to the annotation options to add arrows, comments, and more to your photos! You can also choose to only turn on the auto-annotate feature for deficiencies or all comment photos.

Note: If you choose to turn this setting off, you'll need to manually tap on each photo to add annotations to it.

  • Automatic Syncing

You can enable this setting to automatically sync your data with the server without having to manually trigger it. This will give you peace of mind knowing that your data is being synced to the web as you go!

  • Search Comments On

This feature allows you to customize your global search in the app. You can choose to search for Titles only, or choose Titles and Text to bring up more options when you search!

  • Always Search Entire Report

By toggling this option, the report will automatically search across all sections and items, giving you a more comprehensive search experience.

  • Search Result Limiter

This function allows you to restrict your search choices. You have the option to display the most popular 20, 50, or 100 comments. Alternatively, you have the option to display all comments.

  • Enable Chat Bubble

By enabling this button, you will have access to the chat bubble for support through the app. This feature is designed to make getting help easier and more convenient for you while on-site.

  • Preferred Map Application

The "Preferred Map Application" allows you to select your preferred navigation app, such as Apple Maps or Google Maps. When you click on the directions option during your inspection, it will open the directions in the chosen app.

  • App Theme

Did you know that you have the option to personalize the color and theme of your app? By accessing your settings, you can choose between system, light, or dark mode. The system setting will match the default theme of your device. Selecting the light option will give the app a brighter look with a white background. For a darker aesthetic, you can opt for the dark mode with a black background.

  • Text Size

The text size feature gives you the ability to customize the size of text within the app, ensuring optimal readability for your device. By default, it will follow your device's OS settings under the "system" option. But don't worry, if you prefer a different text size, you can easily choose from a variety of options, such as smallest, small, default, large, and largest. This convenient feature applies to all text input areas, making it effortless to make any desired adjustments.
