Create a Project Level Inspection Template


To create an inspection template at the Project level for use in a project's Inspections tool.


Creating inspection templates at the Project level allows you to easily use the same or similar templates in your project without having to remake them each time. Templates created at the Project level will not sync to the Company level. If you want to use a template on more than one project, create the template at the Company level. You can also modify an existing Company level template to fit your project's unique needs.
