Some templates are best performed as a group, in a particular order. For instance, after your inspection agent submits a Periodic Inspection, you may prompt them to perform a Pet Inspection. zInspector’s Next Document feature allows you to specify a followup document to open automatically for a given property when the current inspection has been submitted and uploaded.
To do so, you can simply add the following code to the end of a customized template to specify the next document to open. Replace”Template B” with the exact name of an existing template.
Z:[[Instruction | NEXT_DOCUMENT | [Template B] ]]
For example, when customizing a Periodic Inspection, your Next Document code might look like this:
Z:[[Instruction | NEXT_DOCUMENT | [Pet Inspection] ]]
In this case, after finishing the Periodic Inspection, the Pet Inspection would open automatically.
Important: While a user can manually start any inspection and complete it on the zInspector 3 app without an internet (mobile or WiFi) connection at the property, Next Document depends on the preceding document being fully uploaded to the server. As such, the Next Document feature is only practical for users with a mobile connection at the property. Devices that lack a mobile network connection or users that opt to upload photos and videos on WiFi only will not be able to use this feature practically.
Pro Tip: By specifying a Next Document for template A, a different Next Document for template B, and so on, you can string a sequence of inspections, forms, and other documents together to be completed in a particular order.
- The Next Document feature is only available for inspections performed by users on the zInspector 3 app. It is not available for inspections performed by tenants on the tenant inspection app.
- If the specified template name in the Next Document code does not exactly match an existing document, a list of potential matches may be shown instead; the user can tap to open the most appropriate one.
