Scheduling Inspections in Chintaro
Click the Home button to go back to the Home Screen. Click Property Maintenance> Inspections> Schedule Inspections. The following screen will appear:
This screen is designed to schedule Inspections for Rooms in bulk. You may not know the dates that you will be inspecting some Rooms/Properties, and if this is the case, leave these Rooms/Properties without a Next Inspection Date until you do know the date that you will be inspecting the Room.
For the Rooms that you do know the date you will be inspecting, double click on the row of the Room to open the Room Details pop up. Enter the Next Inspection field, and change the Inspection Type field, if required.
Click Update. The Next Inspection and the Day Of Week fields will be populated. You can change the Next Inspection Date by typing over the date and pressing <TAB> if you have entered the wrong date.
Select a time you will be inspecting each Room from the drop down list in the Time column, if known. Inspection times can be added at a later date if you are scheduling Inspection dates only.
Repeat steps 7, 8 and 9 for all the Rooms that you want to schedule Inspections for.
Exit the screen to save the data entered.
NOTE: Although there is a considerable amount of work in setting up the Scheduled Inspections for Rooms, this process will only have to be done once. Chintaro will automatically update the Next Inspection and Last Inspection fields, and once you set this up, you will only have to select a time for the Next Inspection to take place.
