When it comes to templates, it can be overwhelming for both people conducting inspections and viewing inspection reports, if there are pages after pages of questions without some form of categorization. That’s why it’s important to create sections in your templates to not only improve the experience for your team when conducting inspections but also allow stakeholders to peruse inspection reports easily.

This article shows you how to create and move or rearrange sections in the template editor on the web app and the mobile app. Remember that you can also convert the sections you create into Repeat sections, allowing you and your team to repeat the same set of questions as many times as needed in a single inspection.

Before you begin

You must have “View and Edit” permission at least for the template you wish to create 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.
