The report pre-set is set-up to assist our users with basic to intermediate level report customization.

Report pre-set is a feature designed to empower SnapInspect users through basic report customization. The report pre-set feature allows our customers to create/modify reports to fit your company. Our main goal is to allow users to set-up to assist our users with basic to intermediate level report customization.

To access the report preset customization settings please first log in to the web app then navigate to the Checklists tab and from here you will see a Customize Report Style button near the top of the page.

Please note only admin users have access to the checklist tab. If you do not see the checklist tab please contact your company admin or reach out to the SnapInspect support team.

Once you complete your ideal “report pre-set” you can assign this template to your checklist, to do this just click on the inspection type you want to assign the pre-set to and then under Report Template drop down select the *Report Preset Template* option and then select the template you have created.

**Please note it is always good practice to refresh the page after doing so.

Once you have assigned your preferred “report pre-Set” to Inspection Type and synced your device, everything will be ready to go & linked to the appropriate areas, enjoy the new-found freedom you have for report customization!

Report Summary

Display Summary: Toggling this on will allow for your inspection report to have a summary section of specific ratings. Usually a short list of poor/bad items.

Summary Rating: This is the ratings that you want to be displayed on your summary page. Please ensure that you have spelt each rating exactly as you have it on your checklist


For calculations to work, they need to have that area or item selected as a "number only field." 

Once this has been selected our system will calculate what is in the selected field, hence having to be numbers to enable report calculation. 

Enable Calculation: toggling this function will enable the calculation of your inspection reports.

Calculation configuration: Define formula as sum up (normally for costing evaluation), or average (for average/scoring of the section/item, the score sum/number of items).

Include empty item into calculation: For average formula, toggle between only including items that have a score or all items to be divided.

Calculate Display Prefix/Unit: To allow a unit character display in front of the calculated result. E.g. $.

Side by Side Report 

Enable Merge Report: This feature allows users to have side by side inspection reports. For example, a move in inspection beside a move out inspection to compare conditions. Please note only inspections using the same checklist with be compared.
