We understand that in some scenarios, your team may need to inspect the same type of item multiple times in a day, answering the same set of questions. Rather than starting a new inspection for each item, you can create Repeat sections in your templates to allow your users to repeat the same set of questions as many times as needed in a single inspection.

This article shows you how to create and disable Repeat sections in your templates on the web app and the mobile app.

Before you begin

You must have “View and Edit” permission at least for the template you wish to create Repeat sections in. Learn how you can share your templates with your team.

Keep in mind that changes made to templates only apply to new inspections moving forward.
