Inspection Points

Inspection points are the areas of the vehicle that the driver will inspect. For each inspection category, you can have one or more inspection points to ensure that portion of the vehicle is safe to operate. For instance, if you want the driver to check the brakes, the inspection category would be Brakes, and then you could have multiple inspection points for the brakes, including whether the air compressor is working or not, are the brakes leaking fluid or are they running hot, among other options. The driver will see the inspection points, and may need to acknowledge that each point was checked. 

Note: If you are using Drive, you should not add inspection points, or change the existing inspection points, although you can re-order the inspection points within each inspection category. 

To re-order the inspection points within an inspection category: 

  1. On the left side of the screen, under Inspection Points, click the vehicle you want to change the inspection points for. The vehicle appears in panel in the center of the screen, with a list of all the categories that should be inspected. 
  2. Click on the category you want to re-order the inspection points for. A list of all the inspection points for that category appears on the right side of the screen. 
  3. Click the dots icon for the inspection point you want to move, and drag the inspection point to where it should appear in the list. The inspection point is moved.
