At times, you will want to schedule a one off inspection, which will differ from the Scheduled Inspections you conduct on a regular interval (EG 3 Monthly, 6 Monthly, Annually, etc). An Ad Hoc Inspection may be required when you need to do a follow up Inspection (or for any other reason). Chintaro has a separate screen to schedule Ad Hoc Inspections.
Scheduling Ad Hoc Inspections
From the Home Screen, click Property Maintenance> Inspections> Ad Hoc Inspections. The following screen will appear:
This screen is designed to schedule Ad Hoc Inspections when required. The first step is to filter the screen to only show the Property (or Properties)/Tenant (or Tenants) that you will be scheduling the Ad Hoc Inspection for. You can do this by filtering the Property Name, Current Tenant or Property Manager columns.
For example, we are scheduling 2 Follow Up Ad Hoc Inspections for 2 Tenants:
Once you've filtered this screen, you will need to allocate the first Inspection with an Inspection Type:
NOTE: (Inspection Types can be created in System Maintenance> Reference Tables> Inspection Types)
Enter the Inspection Date (or select from the calendar icon), and select a Time you'll inspect the Property (times are in 15 minute intervals):
Repeat for other Ad Hoc Inspections:
When you have selected an Inspection Type, Inspection Date and Inspection Time for your Ad Hoc Inspections, click Create Inspections. This will process the schedule of Inspections to appear in the Manage Inspections screen.
Click Clear ALL Inspections so the screen retains no data.
Entering Data from a Completed Inspection
Once you have scheduled your Ad Hoc Inspections in Chintaro and you have completed the physical inspection of the Room, you will need to enter the data from the Inspection in to Chintaro.
From the Home Screen> Property Maintenance> Inspections> Manage Inspections.
The following Search Screen will appear:
Filter this screen to show the Properties/Rooms you have inspected.
