Photos are an essential aspect of any inspection process, and zInspector presents multiple options for requesting photos during an inspection. You can add a camera icon next to any listed Area or Detail so that the photos taken subsequently are automatically associated with the correct element of the property, and taking these photos can be made required or simply optional.
Additionally, you can also request or encourage an inspector or tenant take photos by using an Instruction, Text, or Paragraph field (covered in other articles).
Below you can see some examples of how Photo Fields can work:
|Photo Fields||Z:[[Take Pictures]]||Adds a camera icon for the user to tap to take photos.|
|Z:[[Take Pictures | Smoke Detectors | [;;;;;Required] ]]||Makes the picture required to be taken (red camera icon).|
