Inspections: Section Items
Each Section has a unique Section Items form. The default content of these forms can be edited in the Library section. The Section Items form can also be modified at any time during an Inspection.

Each Item for an Inspection is rated. Rating options are: S = Satisfactory, NI = Not Inspected, NP = Not Present, AR = Attention Required (or as an alternative, and for Texas: I = Inspected, NI = Not Inspected, NP = Not Present, R = Not Functioning or In Need or Repair).
Navigate to the Section you wish to work on. If you select a rating for a Section (at the very top), notice that it populates all the Items in that Section with the same rating. Selecting a rating for a Section will not override ratings selected for individual Items, unless you did this as your last step, instead of your first. The Section rating is not shown in the Inspection Report, this feature is merely provided as a convenience when all the Items in a Section have the same rating, or mostly the same rating.
For Items, select a Descriptor from the pulldown menu.
