Offline Capabilities (PC Companion Software)
Conducting a report without Internet access in the field is no problem with the Companion PC software. All reports must first be created online, and then downloaded to the PC software. The entire report may be completed offline, including the addition of the photos, and printed on site if desired.
Never copy and paste any text from a Microsoft Word document, or from the internet into the application, it can cause problems.
Very long e-mail addresses interfere with the property information layout on page 2 of the report, in a PDF generated report. If you have a long e-mail address, the easy fix is to just set up another e-mail address at no cost, with google, or yahoo, or with your Internet provider. You could use this shorter e-mail address just for your reports.
You should never delete a Library, a Section, or an Item, from your Library section, which was used in an inspection report. Think of the application as your own personal data base, if you delete the data, then will you will no longer be available to edit an existing inspection report.
Do not use the # character in the inspection number, (example #412) it will prevent a PDF report from being generated for the report.
