Get to Know Jobs in Tap Inspect
Home inspectors get hired to perform some kind of service for their clients. Usually a service like a home inspection. In the course of providing that service, you will schedule the job, perform the inspection, review your results, and finally share those results with your client.
Most home inspectors think in terms of reports. A client hires you, you go do the inspection, and then you deliver the report. In Tap Inspect, a job is much much more than just a report. A job is where everything about that job is saved and viewed.

The tabs at the top of the screen guide you throuh the lifecycle of the job. This helps you schedule, inspect, review, and finally share the results of the job.
Everything about this job is available at a tap. Tap on the inspection address or inspection date to make changes. Tap on a person to edit their contact information or add a new person associated with the job. Tap to add private notes to remind you about special concerns the client may have or special conditions like gate codes or pets that may be in the house.
As a best practice, you will want to add all the job details possible before heading out to do the job.
PRO TIP: Having the correct address, date/time, and the names, emails, and phone numbers of all the people will save effort and confusion when it's time to share the results.
